I still have my Xdrive working and I am running 19x8.5-235 front and 19x9.5-265 in the rear. I know the main reason to run a setup like this is to get better traction to your rear wheels on RWD cars but I did it cause its sext AF.

I have been running it for about 6+ months with 0 issues so I am happy.

wider tire is irrelevant. aspect ratio is. if you keep the ratio same as before, awd won't care less.

Not true since overall diameter is based on the width and aspect ratio... hence ratio. 255/35/18 is much taller than 225/35/18.
