Default Can I run stock 18" rear staggered on front?

So I had to take my front wheels off, doing a little work on them, and I was wondering if I could take the rear 18's from my OEM staggered setup and put them on the front, just not sure if the offset would be ok in the front.

offset of the OEM rear 18s is 50, OEM Front 18s is 45. I think itd be okay. try to hand tighten a lug nut and rotate the wheel slowly?

When you have those 18x8.5 wheels up front, what will be out back? Same size OEM wheels? If so, you're setup will be "square" and will be fine.

The wheel can definitely fit without issue, I would be concerned about the tire size however, as the rear tires are almost an inch taller than the front and running that size will most likely rub.

Have my other wheels still on the back, they are 9.5 in the rear, so still staggered.

Ha! Rub! My best friend in the whole world, I can never go anywhere without rub it seems! No, in all seriousness it will rub, but I turned my coils up a hell of a lot, so hopefully it wont be too bad. I don't really need to drive it all that often while my I'm working on my front wheels so I'm not too worried. Thank you for the valuable info though, seriously appreciate it!!
