Unhappy HELP :MV4 19 inch rear 9J . Can they be replaced with 8Js ?

Hi Guys

Need some advice . Had a bit a of a nightmare weekend . Was on my way to the air port when the rear drivers slide run flat gave away ( no tyre pressure warning ) . Managed to hobble the car my mates and caught my flight out . Next day he tried to get it sorted and get a pair of non run flats put on back . As i have non run flats on front . But when they tried to get tyre of the alloy the side wall had fused to the alloy also it had 7 cracks so was pretty knackered . Been on the hunt this weekend for a new rear alloy . From what I understand E93 come with MV4 19 inch alloys have a 8j width on the front and a 9j width on the rear as default . I have been looking around the Internet and see a lot of front 8j . Some people I have emailed have advised me to swap out my 9j rears for 8j as they are less prone to cracks . My question is can my 9j rears be replaced for a pair of 8j and can I still fit my 255/30/19 on the rear . Will it effect my ride in anyway . Are there any issues of me swapping these out?

Any assistance would be appreciated. My e93 is currently sitting on its rear alloy at my mates place .

Thanks

Ish

255/30 is too wide for an 8 inch rim.
