325i NON sport wheel/tire question

I currently have 16x7 style 156 wheels with the stock run flats on them and I'm looking to upgrade to 18” wheels. I like the look of the 189's but I'm just going to buy a set of the fronts all the way around so I can still rotate my tires. I'd like to run Sumitomo HTR A/S P01 235/40's on those and what I've gathered from reading through every post I could find is that all this is fine fitment wise but how will this effect handling and steering since I'd be going from a 16” RFT to an 18” Non RFT? Is it that noticeable? Also from what I read I don't have TPMS on the 06 and it uses the ABS system, will upgrading to 18's cause any DTC problems?

I also have a set of shocks/struts/springs from an 06 325i sport that I had planned on swapping over when I needed to but should I do that at the same time as the tires? Any one with a 325 sport and 18” wheels notice a difference from their stock 17” wheels in a negative way when they upgraded?

Just verified it does not have TPMS all 06's use the ABS and wheel speed instead. I was also told that unless the wheel size is staggered I shouldn't have a problem with 18's, anybody have experience with this?

I am also having a hard time finding some decent pics of 18's on a non sport package car though, most of the older posts are missing the pics or have broken links, anybody got any recent or working pics of 18's on a non ZSP car?

here mine.

19" non sport suspension its the perfect size imho go big or go home

no problems with the tyre warning system.

i highly advise 19" staggered the car feels so damn planted and stable through corners its like a night and day difference from the stock 16" conti SSR rft's
