HElp!!!

Ok im about to order the HP racing EVO's and want to get them in 18x8 in fron and 18x9 in rear problem is if i were to get the 9's in the back I would only be able to upgrade those tires at first. Would this be a problem since i would basically be mismatching brands? I was told its ok by some but want more feeback first. THanks.
