Installing an oversized rubber stair nose

Q: Would it be okay to install a large rubber stair nose of 1 7/8 on a tread that is 1 1/2? The other option would be 1 3/8 molding, and I would have to paint the nose black before installing black rubber.

Any input would be appreciated.

A: I would want to be sure the bottom edge of the oversized nosing does not represent a tripping issue, AKA being a “foot catcher”.
