F 30 Style 397 18X8" ET34 on E32

I have picked up BMW rim Style 397 18X8" ET34 that is used on F30 Sport. The wheels are not staggered, so I have to go with the same tire all around. Could someone recommend a tire size that would fit E32 335i couple? I was thinking to go with 4, 235/40/18. Would this set up work, or should I go with 225/40/18 or 235/35/18? Would I have any problem with speedometer reading? Thanks,

The wheel specs are: 18 x 8, 34 offset 5 x 120. Any recommendation for all around tires? I hope for 235/40/18 or should I do 235/35/18?

You can run mismatched tires on matching rims if you want - there are no rules banning it.

18x8, 34 offset....I am thinking to run 225/40/18 on the front and 245/35/18 on the rear on this wheel. Has anyone run this set up? Pros or cons?

BEFORE you buy tires...check if the offset of the 397's work with your E32. TIRE RACK CAN HELP YOU WITH THAT....AS WELL AS WITH YOUR TIRE SIZE QUESTION.
