I would go with SVE Drifts or AM AMR wheels before Saleens.

Yeah. Funny you say that. I tried to buy some SVE Drifts this weekend from this guy in TN:

But they were the wrong offset. :(

Yeah I had to warn you about that. They would have fit, but you would have needed spacers to have the rear look right.

You can go as high as 335. There is a guy on MM that has silver drifts on his cobra with 335s on the rear. I'm not a fan of them though since it has a decent sized sidewall bulge because of it.

I liked the KDW's on my Neon (came stock with them), but dammit if those things didn't last long at all.

I'd stick with 315's they fit no problem. I went to skinny on my tires and I regret that.

Yeah I went with 275s on my 17x10s, would have gone 295 or 315 but couldn't find a good deal on tires

A real 295 is perfect for an 18x10. You can't compare Nitto 555/555R, as they run narrow in these sizes. A 305 starts to bulge and a true 315 pooches the sidewall.

buy those 315's from Tony, and i'd trade to them for my 295/35s. like WDW MKR said, a 295 fits a 10" wheel much better than a 10.5. my rears are 10.5 and the 295 is just a touch to small, and i mean just a touch. they would be perfect on a 10".
