Tires again. Please advise

I'm getting style 162 for my 06 330 tomorrow . I wish to keep same size tires , but the wheels are staggered (18x8, 18x8,5) so my question is . Is it ok to run 235x40x18 front and rear ( I'm not sure even if is possible to fit them ) , or I need to go with 225x40 and 255x35 ?

Well, the whole idea behind going with a staggered setup, is to run wider tires on the rear than on the front.

I'm sure you are using the square tire setup with staggered wheels only because the tries you have are still good.

You can go to Tire Rack site, find your tires (or any tire in 18" size for that matter), and under the 'Tire Specs' they show a table indicating Rim Width Range & recommended width for each size tire...

Yes, you can run a square setup with 235/40/18 tires on your new rims.
