We have the same size tires and wheels on all four corners of our 2009 smart. It proved the handling of car on corners and in wind. We used stock rear wheels all around and purchased Kumho tires on line from Tire Rack, tire rack.com.

Tire swap

I am trying to do the same wheel change. I would like to put two rear tires and rims on the front of my 08 passion for two. Where did you get the tires and rims? I put a a request on the forum and did not get a single reply. The local dealer wants $1100 for two rims and tires. I would appreciate any information.

For that amount of money, you could buy 4 aftermarket rims and tires!! Check with Smart Madness for stock rear rims, and go with tires from Tire Rack (tirerack.com) I just got 4 tires with shipping it came to $318 and some change. Rims I got from an old smart dealer for about $50 each. (steel Pure rims)
I have seen some rims listed on here with tires for around $500 just have to be patient I guess..
