335xi tire size issue
Okay, I'm modifying my stock 18" wheel/tire setup to be my winter setup.
My stock 189s are staggered, 8.0" front, 8.5" rear.
I'm replacing the stock tires
My concern is that my tire manufacturer didn't have the exact measurements for sidewall / width as the stockers and how will that affect the XDrive system.
By my math, the stock setup has basically the exact same sidewall height front to rear (3.546" front versus 3.517" rear), and the new setup will be almost a third of an inch larger (3.546" front versus 3.862" rear) in the rear. Is that a big enough variance to be an issue with xdrive (or anything else?).
Am I getting way to insane in analyzing this? I've already ordered the rubber, so I'm hoping I don't have to change anything.
Thanks in advance all!

Reason: incorrect stock wheel widths - corrected
