Has anyone kept their 16" na wheels in front but, had the 17"TT wheels in the back? I wonder if this would upset the handling at all.

it wouldn't affect handling if you get the right tyres.
why are you asking?

Don't Acura NSX's come stock that way, 17's up front 18's out back?
Not sure about the NSX, but many modified cars do this, especially old school muscle cars, and it looks great. And IMO, the Supra, as an import, is the closest thing to a muscle car. It couldn't look that bad at all. Photoshop?

The reason that I'm asking is that I hate the look of the rear tires on na rims. The sidewall of the tire on the 16" rim is to damn tall. I thought if I went to 17's in back it would improve the appearance of the car and keep the same total diameter so that the speedo won't be off.
Plus...I'm cheap and just bought brand new 16" Kumos for the front.

Dude, if you had 17" in front and 16" in rear, that would look straight up retarted!
you got it backwards

and i bet if you put the TT 17's in the rear you will get tremendous understeer. When I was at stock width, I would understeer a lot

i think the 17s alloys from the TT and the 16 inch na rims are similar, but idont even think they are the same rim, the spokes on the 17s are much wider, i think it would look like shit.
