some advice on wheels/tires 535xi Msport

I picked up the car on Thursday night. so nice to drive a car that's not heavily modded. lol
AW with black dakota leather, aluminum hexagon trims. factory installed black front grilles, CF mirror caps, CF rear spoiler, and M side sills. the car looks sick. will post pictures later.

i already ordered H&R sport springs. front reflectors, thinking about the rear ones.

about the wheels, i read in this section that each wheel is about 32-32lbs and tire alone is 30lbs. yikes!!! it's too darn heavy for me. my volk te37 on my m3 is only 18.7lbs.

the wheels i want to run will be custom made. i am thinking 18x9 et30 front 18x9.5 et20 rear with concave look. tires i am thinking of staggered setup too.

my main question is, will it do any harm to the x drive system? this is my lease car and i don't want to damage the system.
