    Default Rim size difference

    Front cracked rimReplacement Rim I recently cracked my 2008 pontiac grand prix gxp front rim which is 18x8 and was able to find a rim that was 18x7. Is this going to cause any problems? Will it even fit?

    The offset on the rear 18x7 rims is different and so is the tire size. The rolling diameter is the same but it's going to look pretty funky going down the road.

    If it's the drive tire, you'll do easier burnouts. Lol

    Would it be possible to have all 18x8 all around?
