Will this work without causing serious

problems?

Staggered wheel/tire setup
Front: 205 60 15
Rear: 205 55 16

And my other question is tire height and how they look on the car: How is this set up gonna look,...the front tires will look higher than the rear or no noticeable difference at all.

why are you going to run different diameter wheels? Also, the difference is small, but you may run into ABS issues (aka it disabling itself at highway speeds).
