    no problem, provided you stay with very similar overall diameter size tires on them.
    ie... more wheel, less sidewall... kind of compromise.

    I'd run 315/30-18s on 18x10.5 in the front and 315/25-19s on 19x11 in the rear, if those sizes exist.

    well the reason i'm still debatin is if i were to do 18 19s i'd wanna run a 35 series. i'd like em staggered that size, but i don't like the look of 1 inch tread. i'd rather go with 17 18s if there isn't enough clearance and i'd have to run the sidewall that small

    remember that for every extra 1" of wheel, you should be removing 1/2" of sidewall to maintain same overall diameter.
