How would you set up your staggered set?

I just purchased a set of rims "staggered" and was searching on the correct tire size for them. At the same time I checked what I had on now and I'm really confused. Any help would be great.

Current:
Front: 255/35/18
Rear: 225/40/18
This is how my set up was when purchased. Seems backwards to me??

Eitherway, below is my new set up.
Current Rim Purchase:

18" x 8.5
18" x 9.5

How would you run your set up? Tire size that is. I like the 35 / 40 look. Can I just use what I have current?

255/35R18 on the rear. The original wheels for the staggered setup (E92) were 8.0" front and 8.5" rear. You don't indicate what vehicle you're installing these on, or if the wheel 'ET' has been verified as being suitable.

Tires are fine if big if you have the correct offset in the wheels. I have 245X35X19 - 275X30X19 on mine with stock 313 wheels

Should be 18x8.5 225/40/18 up front and 18x9.5 255/35/18 in the rear. You can also go wider to a 235 front and 265 rear as well.

Thanks for the info. So for my 2010 335d with sport package (as I think this makes it 1inch lower) the widest rear tire I can run is 265? I'm shopping for new wheels. Both of my front ones are cracked. I want to stick with 18" but getting rid of the run flats. By the way, what "style" of wheels do I have?
