I agree it definitely looks better but everyone has been telling me to put a 26 on my car because it will be slower on a 28. I just wanted your opinion.

That's what I hear see people say too but then I look at this.

Fastest Bolt-on only A8. 10.4 @ 128 with a 28"

Fastest Heads Cam A8. 9.97 @ 136 with a 28"

All FI cars running decent times are on a 28"

I suppose a stock geared A8 with light bolton mods can be faster on a 26", especially with roll racing. So it depends on your setup and goals. M6 car would benefit from a 26 the most imo. Even then the top 2 heads/cam M6 cars are running 28's. 28 just makes launching easier and more consistent.

Yeah it makes sense to me also but I have been told by numerous people to not put a 28 inch tire on this car and do a 26. I guess I will do a 28 then.

If you do 26s in the rear and keep the 28" tall front, it's going to throw a stabilitrac light on.

Yeah it will either be 26s or 28s all the way around.

Well I ordered the 17" recluse wheels. The 17" wheels were about $40 each less and the tires were about $90 each less than 18s.
