I just purchased Genius 17x6 wheels.. The salesperson at Discount said maybe run them on all 4?? I took one wheel home to analyze, and I don't know what I should do??? Will this work 17x6 on all 4?? Will it look "tough"? Should I stay with staggered?? 200hp Busa??? what to do???

run on all 4 if you want to maximize tire life, allows you to rotate tires provided you don't purchase directional tires which will only allow front / rear swap. A lot of threads about running same size all around.

SMARTBUSA, a bit off topic, what did you do with the original motor and trans?
Would be interested if available.

Back on topic for a moment - others with 17" rims can chime in, but with 17x6 up front, you may have an issue with turn radius - you may find the tires rubbing when you turn more than a little. I believe there are ways to accommodate that (shims, perhaps).
