Dropping tyre size E Class W212.


I have a 2015 W212 E220 AMG Sport

The Tyres currently on it are
245/40R18 Y 97 Front tyre (8.5J)
265/35R18 Y 97 Rear tyre (9.0J)

I have purchased some new wheels and it has got nearly new tyres on it.
Front and Rear wheels are 8.5J ET 50.

The tyres are 235/40R18 all round instead of the recommended 245/40R18.

Will this still be alright? Can i use them like this and just swap out the tyres to a 245 profile all round as and when when the tyres wear out?

Any help or advice would be very welcome.
