OEM runflats would go on the 162s (it's my daily driver). I believe they're 225/40R18 (front) and 255/35R18 (rear)? The tires currently on the car are not staggered, so this has me concerned.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts - just want to be sure everything will work correct before I make the purchase.

Not a problem at all. The stagger is not an issue, only the rolling diameter which is nearly identical on those tires.

I run that exact setup on my 08 328xi w/o sport package in the summer.
