Bad use of phrasing on my part. By "works" I meant the looks. Different size lips don't work for me.
I have deep dish black bullitts on my car (avatar needs to be updated) with the same big lip front and back, and I think they would look better with a smaller lip on front.
To the OP, I have to agree with an earlier comment, if they are all black they all look pretty much the same from 20 feet or more. My personal opinion is they need at least some silver or contrasting color to separate the wheels from the tires and make them "pop" more. Up close I think either of your picks would look great.
