Is there anyone running a staggered wheels with a square tire setup?

18x8
18x9

245/50s

A lot of talk online that the rolling diameter needs to match, but if the tires are the same size I see it as a non-issue.

245 on a 9j wheel is a slight stretch. With that said, if I were to run this on my car, will it negatively affect the handling characteristics due to the same tire size on a different wheel width?

TIA

The tire on the wider rim will be smaller circumference. Hard to tell how much till you put a tape around it, but geometry is geometry.

I believe I read that over 3/8" difference on my 2005 would be bad for the differentials......
