330xi tire mixing

I need front tires on my 03 330xi and i would like to upgrade to a 225/45/17's over the stock 205/50/17's. The issue is i have a 3 month old rear right and the rear left has more than 50% in 205's and would hate to ditch them. Accoridng to tire calcuators the 225s 24.97 dia and 205s are 25.07 dia. This would be .2 MPH diffrence at 60mph. Would it be a bad idea to place the two new wider & tallertires in the front only or should i really go and spend the extra ~$300 for all 4 new and eat tossing the 3 month old rear tire. How touchy is this GM transaxle? Thanks.
