Please suggest wheel and rim sizes!

It's that time... chassis is about complete and is ready for wheels and tires. I've always been on the fence about what sizes to use for weekend and fair weather street use: 17x11's & 315's or the 15" wheel and ET Street w/ skinnie route. I have all the power and suspension to accomodate either, I just need some opinions on what size wheels and tire to commit to. Thanks!

Some backround: Mark Williams fully built rear end, Wolfe suspension, AJE front, coilovers all around, 600+ rwhp...

If your car is mainly for strip duty, I'd go with the fatties out back and 3.5's up front. More street duty, wides all the way around. Just my .02...

Thanks for the reply - that's been the general concensus so far. I think the 315/35/17's will find their way on the back of the car first for street duty. I've been told the skinnies up front way get a little old on a mainly street car no matter how well set up it is.
