Tire shop messed up my staggered setup

Hey guys, just noticed something that mad me mad. 2 weeks ago i got my mmd rims and tires mounted up. I have 2 9x18s and 2 10x18s. For the back i got 275-35/18s and the front i got 245/45/18s. Drove it for 2 weeks but just noticed that i have one 10 inch rim in the front with a 245 tire on it, and one 9 in the back with a 275. Going to call the shop as soon as i can, but in the mean time, is there any issue with running a 245/45/18 on a 10x18 rim? Thanks.

Family owned. Usually pretty good tho. Problem is i live 3 hours away. Gunna call them and ask them to reemburse me the cost of switching. So its still good to drive right?

Ur sidewalls prob stretched but u should be fine. U should def get it taken care of asap. Im surprised U didn't notice how it was handling as it sits. Ppl make mistakes but that's uncalled for.

Should be fine. Thats a hell of a stretch for a 245 on a 10" wheel! Most barely fit on a 9" wheel without lipping out some. Wow. I guess you didnt have a reason to go to the passenger side, lol. Im surprised the alignement tech didnt notice it, unless they are the ones who put the tires and wheels on. Thats a pretty big mistake!! Any pics? Im curious because I ordered the MMD 551c wheels staggered liken you in silver. What tires did you go with?

Got the tires switched, 50 dollars later. The original shop said that they would pay 36 dollars(the price of two wheel balences and mounts there) but that they wouldnt admit they put them on wrong. Also no appology. Whateverrrrr, atleast the car doesnt push to the left anymore🙈. I got the mmd kage wheels in the staggered set up and i love them! Went with General Gmax se-03s for a tire. Great tred life and grip for a mildy modded mustang at a great price i think. Also running a 1 inch spacer on the back.
