Different size rims in rear than front??

I was thinking it would be kinda cool to set my car in more of an agressive stance by putting 18 x 10 wheels in the rear and 17 x 9 in the front of the vehicle. What affects will this have on handling? Will it also put more straint on the front end? Just Curious..

I have the black deepdish bullits, 18x9 front and 18x10 back. My rear end has seemed to stabilize and the wider tire gets better grip. I have a recent post (black deepdish on 03 Stang pics) that will show it's stance on a stock suspension platform. Lowering the car will always, of course, make the car look mean and very aggressive.
I can't say mine handles great but I just wanted to try something different being they really don't make any skinnies for the newer stangs. I've thought about getting 15x10s for the rear just because it would ride softer but I really like the width of my 17x11s :nice:
