Trans Am Staggered Wheels: 17/18 or 18/19

Greetings:
I was wondering if there'd be any issues with the placement of staggered diameter wheels on a 2000 Trans-Am convertible. I've seen the 17/18 set up (lowered, of course), and I've also seen 19F & R, but not the 18/19 scheme. Will either set-up (17/18 or 18/19) cause any issues with the transmission, suspension, or the consequent triggering of any codes or other dash warnings? My purpose for doing this is to create the sleek, aggressive, & angled 'creeping' appearance of the Corvette. Thanks for any input here.

Larger tires may throw off your speedo a bit. You also may feel a little difference in your ride if you get too large.

19s imo are pushing it. Plus tires are going to be damn expensive. You will need to recalibrate for the bigger tires. Im not sure, but if you werent to get it tuned your ABS might be affected.
