2018 GLC 43 wheels question

I have a GLC 43 SUV. Im looking at a set of wheels that are the OEM 21 wheels however they are ALL 4 the 9.5s the rear wheels size not staggered. My dealer put one of my rear 20s on the front and it cleared when turned all the way each direction.
They did say it was very close. Can someone give me advise on

1. Will this square setup work?
2. Will it look stupid because the fronts will be outside of the fender?

thanks for the help

2018 - 43. Brilliant blue, saddle brown, perf exhaust.

I'd have the 63 front fender trim put on so the wheels don't stick out. I'd assume suspension parts will wear out quicker if you're running a 285 in the front.

I have a 2018 GLC43 with 21" and it is a staggered setup. I cannot imagine the rear tires fitting on the front - they are quite wide. As well, I am not sure it would look tall hat great.

21" square setup will look stupid. Crabbing and tramlining will be atrocious.
