stock tire size on 18x8.5 rim

Hey guys just bought a 2014 328i xdrive sport line and planning to use the stock rims as winter rims. My question is can use the stock tire size (225/45/18) on staggered wheel set I have my eyes on that use a 18x8.5 as the rear pair of wheels and 18x8 for the front (which imknow will fit).
Can the stock tire fit the 18x8.5 rear wheel? Any issues with the way the car will ride?

No major issues other than rear tires being stretched .5 inches outside recommended tolerances, but I have seen people run same size tires on 11 inch wheels because it "looks cool" and seem to get around fine. Personally I would either purchase wheels for non staggered (sell/trade staggered to pay for non) or just order a winter tire setup that runs a 255 rear.
