Staggered tyre size?

About to fit some cup turinis to my 182 FF, got two 195/45/16s PS3s, and two 205/45/16 proxes t1r's.

Tyres aren't fitted to the wheels yet, but I was wondering whether running a staggered tyre size would be OK, albeit very minimal? Am I best off running the wider 205s front or rear?

Worth noting that the car's a daily and doesn't see the track.

TIA!

I have run 205s on the front and 195s on the rear on my race car in the past. Obviously better traction with 205s.
On the road I doubt you’d notice any difference.
BUT Toyo T1Rs are truly awful tires and if you can I’d change those and just get a matching set.

Yeah you can run those sizes no problem. Swap them front to rear to see where you prefer the grip. For a safe set up (understeer) stick the Toyos on the front.

Thanks both.

Re the proxes, I bought the car with davanti's on so I'm sure the toyo's would be an upgrade!
