Default 225/50/r16 in rear?

ok i want to get some 225/50 for the rear but i have these two concerns.

1. I want to keep the 205's up front, can i run the 225's safely without effecting anything? (I will buy the 225/50's if i have to)

2. I have the cobb sport springs so the drop is about 2 inches the rear tires have negative camber (will post pics when i get of work), will the wider tires not be a good mix with the negative camber? Thanks

Why do you want that combo? What makes you think it will be better than 225's all around?

You should run the same size tire on all 4 corners.

Cobb springs are too low, so you get a lot of unwanted rear camber. I'd suggest getting at least some camber bolts to get back some positive camber in the rear.

Wht are the rear tires worn and not the fronts? Are you rotating your tires? Are the tires wearing abnormally in the rear?
