I'm replacing my old 205-55-16 tires with 225-50-16 tires. I understand there may be some handling characteristic changes with the larger footprint, while the height of the tire and rolling radius remain the same.
Since the 16x6.5 will accommodate either 205 or 225, has anyone "staggered" the tires by installing 225's in the rear and 205's in the front using the same size wheels? Besides the rear rubber being 20mm wider than the front, I'm wondering whether the overall effect will look silly without having a true offset of wider wheels (perhaps 7.5" in the rear) to the 6.5" in the front.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
