There are several different styles I'm considering and it's mainly based on looks, why else drop the money? I've seen some wheels that are 7"wide front and rear and some that are 6" front 8" rear. Is there any advantage to one over the other? Am I gonna be ok putting an 11" wide tire on a 7" rim? Is there handling advantages having a wider rim, maybe less sidewall flex.

Oh and the rims I'm considering are all 14" probably gonna run a 26"-27" tire in a radial.

An 11" tire will be just fine on a 7" rim. Even 12" wide is fine. If choosing between a 26" or 27" tall tire, I would recommend 27" on the 14" wheel.

Thanks good to know! Yeah I guess the bigger sidewall would ride better.
