  • Front and Back tires different sizes

    I saw some used wheels for sale the other day i was interested in. the fronts were 17X7 and the backs where 17X8. I am just wondering if this would cause any problems with them being different sizes, or if this is something fairly common?

    It keeps you from rotating the tires from front to back or back to front. I don't know of any other issues. I'm running something similar on my car.

      Has the basic info. The links to the different size wheels show tons of different wheels on Z's usually with tire and wheel specs.
