A handful of newbie questions about wheels/tires

Howdy, I'm looking at getting a set of Axis Rev wheels 18x8.5 all around and putting Pilot Super Sport tires 225/40/18 on all of them.

My questions are:

1- Is it strange to have a non-staggered set of wheels and tires?

2- Is it bad that I'm going from a 255/35/18 to a 225/40/18 in the rear? Even though the rear wheels are staying the same size 18x8.5.

3- I have 2 fingers of wheel gap in the front but only 1 finger of gap in the rear with the top down. Should I somehow compensate for that by lowering the front of the car's suspension or inflating the tires differently or is this imbalance normal?

4- Is there any downside to using spacers to push the wheels out a bit and give it a wider wheel base? I'm pretty clueless here.
Thanks E90 community!
