225 40 18 and 265 35 18 tires on XI

So I found a set of tires with 225 40 18 in the front and 265 35 18 in the rear. I checked the rolling tire diameter calculator and it says its under 1% (0.89% to be exact.)

I just want to double check if someone here can give me a definite answer if they would fit. These came from a 911 4S (AWD porsche) so im fairly confident but I used to run 235 265 for my 219m's so I want to double check.

thanks.

I'm running 225/40/18 & 255/35/18 (Non-RFT) on my stock Style 162 staggard rims. I think that is the factory sizes (as per tire rack).

I have a lci 328 xi. and i put 235/35/19 on a 19x8.5 and a 19x9 . The tire brands are differen't front and back but the tread depth is the same. No lights or codes have been triggered. Say that this would pretty okay to just leave as is for now?
