    Right? Not exactly. Concerned? Depending on the tire size, you're likely OK.

    The difference between a 255 & 235 is less than inch (just over 3/4" in treadwidth). Meh?

    Pop the hub caps. Front wheels say front only. Rear wheels say rear only.

    Re: question about offset rims

    I like 18". The AWD w' MRC is already firm just due to driveline & heavier anti-sway bars. Tires lower profile than 50 may look great but ride suffers. Opinions vary...

    Hi, I have an 05 STS V8 4 with original polished 18" Cadillac rims. Yes, I have wider tires on the rear than the front.

    Jr - The 18" wheels are all the same size; only the tires are different. With the 17's, the wheels are different widths.
