Rear 162's on front?

Question for the AWD Wheel fitment Guru's out there.

Semi-Considering just picking up another set of 162's, and running all 4 18x8.5's with the 255/35/18's as summer tires (I got duped into the Tire and rim Protection package, so figure this will allow me to use that if needed) and run the fronts as Snow tires. Anyone done anything like this?

Will it work?

Why? Offset too much for the front? My cars currently at BMW, otherwise id just jack it up and see what they look like?

try it out, might not be noticable

I was thinking the front will stick out more than the rears due to the deep rear fenders

In that case I could run some spacers in the back and push them out a tab, I'll take a look when I get my car back.
