No need to shorten the chain since both cassettes have the same smallest cog and thus the same "slack" as before.

that.
since you tried it, I've got nothing else.

It would depend a bit on WHICH unspecified tire you have.
Tires with extensive (relatively speaking) "flat protection" would likely be more resistant to "failure".

And use a GOOD QR.

NO-
You can remove a cog from a 9 speed cassette and put it on.
That's NOT the same as an 8 speed, since the cog to cog spacing is different.
You still need 9 speed shifters for 8 of 9 on 7. You...
