DON'T DO IT! I think it's one of the ugliest things on earth. Unless u just came from the track it's a no no. It will change handling because of the differen't tire sizes if you go with different size rims and tires tire brands etc. especially since some are designed to work together and switching in a different type of tire can adversly affect handling.

Not only will it affect handling, it will also strongly affect braking. The wheels all slow down at the same time for proper braking. With one pair of wheels a different size than the other, only one set of rotors will be doing most of the work in slowing the car down since they will be spinning at a faster rate. Again, keep it even.
