Extended Fender Flares on 18" wheels

I am looking for any picture or your opinions on using stock 18" rims (210) with extended fender flares.

This will be on my winter setup, which I use for about 5 months every year. Someone have mentioned on the forum that 18" will look odd with extended flares, since they are intended for 20"+ wheels.
I am not too excited about using wheel spacers as I do not know how they may affect the car performance and safety long term.

Can anyone comment on running 18" wheels with extended fender flares during winter or even all-year-around? Thanks, do not want my car to look silly...
