225/45R17 = 24.97" / 634.23mm
225/40R18 = 25.08" / 637.03mm (+0.44%)
255/35R18 = 25.02" / 635.50mm (+0.20%)

I go in tomorrow to see if they can reset my computer or repair my transfer case (extended warranty) on my 2007 335xi . However, I don't know what to do about the wheels. I put the stock wheels back on to get the calibration done, but could the technician be right when he says there is NO fix for my computer throwing errors with the new wheels?
Huh...? 225/40 and 255/35 are just fine.

Creaking/grinding from a stop was my symptom.
