    Staggered alloys

    Will 18 8j fronts and 18 9j rear cause problems with haldex?

    Same with 19 8.5j and 19 9.5j.

    Cheers

    Nope, so long as you have the correct tyres to make the rolling radius the same front and rear. The Haldex allows for 5% difference in rolling radius for worn tyres I think?

    As said before, rolling radius is the most important thing, get the correct profile tyres to keep the radius the same, the width is not really important.
