Put OEM wheels and RFTs back on the night prior to lease return date, and had a clean return the next day (after some haggling over the size of a few dings, net of mileage overage that was zeroed out later).
different wheels though that's a noticeable modification vs. another brand tires or incorrect rating.
I wanted to be crystal clear for anyone searching archives in the future - the major hold-up on lease pre-inspection were non-RFT tires.
Dealer was going to dismount my PSS tires and re-install RFTs, then noticed non-OEM forged BBS wheels (fronts required spacers), and there it went.

Tire brand did not matter.
The fact that I got RFTs on day 0 and was thought to be returning the car with non-RFTs at the end of the least is what triggered the notification that I would have been charged for replacing PSS's (to be thrown away) with RFTs.
