20 inch front, 18 inch rear

so i just put a cam in my car, and am looking to buy a set of wheels as well. but since the cam im looking to do either a set of 18's or keep a 20 on the front with stock tire and a 305/45/18 for the rear.

what are your guys opinions on the 20 inch front and 18 inch rear?

The back will look better than the front. More sidewall. OK, so i'm old.

For the track is fine, but as a daily it will look goofy.

There are a few guys running this setup. If you search hard enough you'll find a few pics.
I know a guy that's running 18" Forgestars (back) with matching 20" forgestars (front). It doesn't look all that bad.

Here's an old pic of a car with 18" Forgestars and different 20" wheels front. It gives you an idea of what it looks like. It's not that bad of a look.

Just depends on tire size. Not wheel size by itself.
