Problem if load rating on front and rear are different???

I'm looking at purchasing some staggered snow tires from 2 separate vendors due to availability. They are going on OEM Style 161's. Here are the tires

Michelin Pilot Alpin PA2
Fronts: 225/25/17 94V
Rears: 255/40/17 98V

The tires are the same...the speed rating is the same...but it looks like the load rating is different. Is this due to the different staggered profiles?

Is this a problem? I know they are all supposed to match but wasn't sure if LR was part of that comparison.

Thanks all...

Im sure you meant to type 225/45/17, but anyway... You will not have any problems with different load rating tires. Staggered fitments will always have different load ratings. Just be sure to keep your tire pressures up to spec and you should not have any kind of problems.
