Question about the 398 wheel setup?

When I picked up my 335 it came with the 18" 398 style wheel 225x45x18 all the way around. I thought the rear was suppose to be 255x40x18?

Can anyone confirm this? Thanks. I looked online and it shows a staggered setup, so I'm a little thrown off.

is ths a sportline car ? 398 style wheel ???

397 style is OEM on sportline and that is the proper sportline tire setup. 225/45-18 "square"

Staggered setup is only on 19s on sportline or can be 18 w/ M sport.

The staggered setup is only with the 19" wheels.

Yes it's a sport line.

Ok cool thank you or the info and clearing it up. Any idea why they didn't do a staggered setup like on previous sport models? Is it a fuel economy thing?

Here in Europe the 398 wheels are staggered.
