Fitment of 255/40/18 tire on a style 42 18x9 wheel on a 99 540i?

My old boss who I used to work for that sells tires has a pair of Bridgestone turanza 255/40/18 tires for sale cheap. Is anybody running a 18x9 wheel with a 255/40/18 tire without a spacer on the rear of a 540i without any issues. Currently there is a 255/35/18 tire mounted on the wheel but I would like alittle more tire on there since the roads around here are pretty rough filled with potholes.

It will work. It will be taller-not wider so you don't need a spacer. The 255/40 will be 1" taller at 26"

I was pretty sure they would fit - just wanted to check if people used that combination before.
