new rims question

Hello I'm new to the forum and have a rim question. I have a 1998 Maxima and just bought some 350z track rims. Ive done some research about if the rims would fit and looks like they do. after looking for safety issues I couldn't find anything. So my question is does it matter if the front are 18x8 and the rear 18.5, will it cause problems going at high speeds? Any uneven wear on suspension parts. Any advice will be grateful thanks.

No problems. Most people prefer this set-up, (staggered).

So theres no actual benefit or cons? Does it effect acceleration anything? Would it be better to run 18x8 all way around oppse to 18x8 in front and 18.5 in the rears.

It would be easier if all corners were the same for tire rotations and tire life. With staggered, you're pretty much stuck with each tire at that one corner, unless you have a shop dismount/mount the rears and fronts to rotate left to right.

No other issues that I know of...most people do the staggered for fitment.

With the wheels so close in size, you can put the same size tires on all 4 and just run them like a square set.
