I have HM2's 18 x 8.5 on order with 235/40/18 all around for a 330i

I am thinking that I might switch the tire size to 255/35/18 rear which I know will look great but it's the front that gets me a little comfused.

If I go with a 225/40/18 won't it look like too much rim, this is ideally the perfect set-up except for this reason but since it's a front wheel, maybe it won't look too bad . . .

If I go with 235/40/18 then I will have a bigger diameter wheel in the front then in the rear . . . again sounds like it might not be a good set-up

What have others done ?

Any pictures of this staggered set up ?

Are you saying I should stick with the 235's all around or the 235's in the front ?

I am concerned that the look of the car might not look as good with the rear wheels if I go the same size all around since the rear wheels are more 'in' towards the car and the fronts stick out further. I am trying to figure out what is a more uniformed look. OTOH Maybe this should really be a non-issue :dunno:
