Will this look funny?

Would my car look "wrong" or bad if I had 235/50/18 tires in the front and 285/35/18 in the rear? I found a decent price on some rear tires, but I'm assuming since the "50" sidewall in the front is taller than the "35" sidewall in the rear, it will look awful/unbalanced?

Any input would be great fellas'

Thanks

Personally, I think they pull it off here.



If the tire basically matches the look of the fronts, and rims are the same, it shouldn't look too bad.

That picture looks like the taller tires are in the rear though. Hmmm.

WHOOPS!

I mixed it up. My mistake. I apologize, and (figuratively) redact my comment.

Somebody else on here had the same thing. Ended up buying them and then hated it. Don't know how big a difference his was. But he said it looked horrible. And many people agreed.

Yup. It was me haha. And i only had a 45 sidewall up front. I found a great deal on some street radials 305/35/19, and thought I could away with it. Nope. It looked absolutely TERRIBLE. 8/10 regular drivers would never have noticed, but any car enthusiast would have immediately.

235/50 would be a 117.5mm sidewall
285/35 would be a 99.75mm sidewall
That about 5/8" difference
I 1/4" overall diameter.
