225M - Different Width Rims on an e92 335XI??

Hey Guys,
Need some advise here. Im really looking into getting a set of 225Ms for my 11 e92 335xi. I know the specs on these rims are:
Fronts: 8x19 ET 37 (225/35R19)
Rears: 9x19 ET 39 (255/30R19 )

The question I have is regarding staggered vs. non-staggered. Im not sure I want to run a staggered setup. Some reason are unable to rotate tires, cost of rear rubber vs. front rubber, ensuring the proper diameter is equal to not mess up the xDrive, etc . So do I have to run a staggered setup since the rims have different widths or could I possible run something like a 235/35/19 at all 4 corners with the two different width rims?

I guess the rotating will be out of the question as I wouldnt want to put a 9 width on the front and visa vera unless I get non directional tires (not likely lol) and I could swap side to side?
