Staggered tires on a square rim setup

I was looking to order a staggered set of M6 reps but could only get a squared set up from my supplier.

I ended up with 18 x 8.5 all around. I still want to get that staggered look out of my car. Would it look ok if I put 225's on the front and 245's on the rear? Or would that look goofy?

Thanks

It would look okay as long as you matched it with some spacers, either 5 or 10mm whatever can fit. Different sized tires would mean you can't rotate, but who cares.

Mayo, just wondering how your staggered tire/square rim set up has worked for the past year. I'm considering doing the exact same thing with M6 reps on my 330CI.
