no problems, (try) to stick with the same size as your stock rims. So if you currently have 18" try to limit your aftermarket search to 18" rims, upgrading to a larger size 19,20 etc will damage your all wheel drive and transmission in the long run. The only other draw back is - it may void your current tire warranty that you have with the dealership...that is why they are advising you to stay away from aftermarket because, well, they wont make $ off of you anymore..

Is there any issue going from 8 inch wide to 7.5 inch wide wheels... I plan to stay with 17 inch wheels

less surface traction is the drawback - the wider the better..
