205/50-16 245/45-16 combo?

Has anyone used this tire/wheel combo? Wondering how the balance is and especially whether the ABS is thrown off by less tire diameter stagger. My car had ice mode ABS issues for a while which mysteriously went away but I don't want to cause something similar. I might go 225/50-16 in back to minimize understeer but thinking they won't last with a lot of power.

Not quite. I am running 205-50-16 F and 225-45-17R (Hankook C71 slicks), which is pretty close to those diameters. No issues for me other than some slight rubbing in the front when the tires pick up gravels.
