yes, the rears are an inch wider than the fronts! If your cooling system is not working properly it'll mess up the heat system and as well may damage your engine!

it needs to be the same overall diameter

Front- 245/45/19
rear - 275/40/19

replace the filters, use some sort of air conditioning cleaning product, wash the carpets and also use an ozone machine in your car overnight. It should get rid of all the smells.
