mixing LT and P rated tires?

on my ratrod I want the big and little stance. the calculated diameter for the rear suspension is 30" ( 10" kickup ). I know that a 31x10.5x15 would fit the bill, or a 265/75/15 would also and that's a common size in p rated due to the Z71 GM trucks. BUT, the real tall and skinny look would be a 235/85/16 and that is only available as an LT tire. I think D rated was the lowest ply rating I found and that was for Chinese tires.. The front tires are just going to be a 14" tire, around a 24-25" diamater so obviously P rated.

If I put LT's in the back and P's in the front will it cause any really bad handling characteristics or should I just deal with the wider 265? I'm looking in highway rated tires like a General Grabber HTS
