350z wheel difference and overheating with engine light

Asked by Nov 12, 2016 at 09:59 AM about the 2006 Nissan 350Z Enthusiast

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So I crashed my 350z drifting and the rear
passenger wheel is no longer usable. Being a young
guy I don't have much cash so I settled for a wheel
that looked in the pics like the right wheel.
Unfortunately it's very different looking but it also
happens to be a front sized wheel.. My question is if
I put the 18x 8 on the back passenger side (same
size as front wheels) and keep the original driver
side rear wheel at 18x 8 1/2, will it function like
normal? Will anything be bad about this other than
it looking very bad until I can afford more? I really
want to get it back on the road because it's my
daily driver and I have no other car to get to work.

Side question the coolant leaked out of my car
when I crashed and it was overheating when I drove
it. I pulled over got coolant (reservoir is fine and
stays full) when I put water in the cap it leaks out of
( seemingly the radiator) right away. So I put coolant
in reservoir thinking it was good. And when I started
the car the exhaust sounded like it was giving up.
Let it run for a few minutes and it was back to
normal. This is when the check engine light came
on. Car still overheats. When I start it now it seems
fine but will eventually overheat. can't take it in right
now. hopefully this is something I can do myself.
Any help is much appreciated!
