225/45/19 instead of 225/35/19 on 19x8.5

Have been given an awesome deal on some Bridgestone 225/45/19.

Was first thinking on 225/35/19 but the the 225/45/19 are almost free.

I'm running 19x9,5 255/35/19 rear.

Will 225/45/19 work, will it look bananas?

Wheels are front 19x8.5 ET35 E90 LCI.

Not going to work. Too big, /45 is correct height ratio to 17 inch wheel.

Also 3.7% difference in diameter between your front and rear tyres. Messes speedometer etc and probably wouldn´t even fit without rubbing all the time.

Stay with 225/35/19
