Questions about installing 18in wheels on 330Xi

I'm looking to purchase 18in wheels and tires for my 330ix. Has anyone successfully done this without any issues? What I'm looking to get is 18in 5x120, 8in width wheels with 40 offset. Tires are 225/40 r18. This setup looks to be the same outside diameter as OEM so I suspect no issues but I'm curious if anyone has any input. Thanks

Maybe post this in the wheels/tire forum, but 18's would be no issues with a square set up. The issues for the XI's come into play with a staggered wheel set up.

I run ZHP 18" staggered wheels on my 330xi with no problems. These were also listed on realoem as options for my vin. My 330xi has the sport package but I doubt that affects this as the suspension is the same as non sport.
