..as far as pulling te fuse out, i think that may have a damaging effect to our systems by making our the front axels and shaft take a load with out being ingaged? just seems damaging? anywho i hope my 2 sounds valid and that your car gets back to par.
+1 I run 235 and 265 and no problems

Hmmm, interesting to know.

It looks like this combo has an overall circumference difference of almost 0.75".

Wouldn't a 235/35/19 and 275/30/19 be a better match for an XI? That's a lot closer to the same overall circumference.

I'd rather go staggered on my E91 cuz it looks SOOOOOOO much better, but there's no WAY I'm doing it at the risk of effing up my AWD system.

I actually have 255 actually, but I hear with 275 you rub unless you do some modding. I wish I went with 265 but they're more expensive.

Either works fine.

That means nothing without width/offset.

Will these work on 335xi with sport package?
18X8.5 ET35 - 235/40/18
18x9.5 ET33 - 265/35/18

These wheels and tires are coming from a e90 rwd.

My stock setup is 225/45/17 front and back.

Im looking at 18' 8.5 all around or I can do staggered with a 18 9.5 in the rear but im not sure if ill have problems . With these tires 225/40/18 front and 255/35/18 rear. Would I have any problems? My car is a 06 330xi 4dr , not sure if its super sensitive like the 335 2dr's .

You'll be fine - that's what I have run on my 328iX E92 for years with no problems. XDrive between E90/E92 is same - one not more sensitive then the other...

Tire sizes = 25.09" Dia Fronts/25.03" Dia Rears

For the longest time those were the reccomended tire sizes for use with 8-8.5 Front wheels/9-9.5 Rear Wheels according to TireRack & many others.

In recent history people have been pushing it and using larger sizes - in the end, it's the OD of the tire/wheel combo between Front/Rear that need to be <1% difference

are you using 8.5 or 9.5 in the rear on the wheel size?

i'll be doing the same set up 225/40/18 front and 255/35/18 rear but will have 15mm spacers for the rear only. Will the spacers have any effect?

Depends on the offset of your wheels to begin with - obviously they will move your wheels outward by 15mm
