Rim/tire question

Hi everyone, just a random question about rims and tires. I have a 2004 f250 Harley Davidson edition that I am doing a dually swap on. (Interesting/stupid story as to why) I'm opting out of doing the dually adapters on the front end as I like the look of it better with srw wheels on the front and putting a welding on It (box is in terrible shape) so my question is, I'm going to be running stock steel dually rims on the back (16") and was trying to find a pair of wheels for the front but the smallest aftermarket I can find is 17" (super cheap I might add lol) so the question is, if I ran 285/75/16 on the back, and a 285/75/17 on the front, would this be an issue? As these tires technically measure the same? I'm on the fence about how it might looks, but I figure that they are all black, so it might not stand out, and it's just an inch. Anyone ever ran something like this, or seen pics? I've searched but came up empty. If anyone has a pic they could throw up that would help.

Rig welders are like a wheel barrow with a flat tire, hard to push around and easily upset.

Oddly I was looking at something similar as a back up, just a different brand as I'm in Canada and those from summit would be more than the other set of aluminum wheels I was looking.
