[e90xi sedan] weird size: 16x8 ET 25, optimal tire size?

Hi folks,

For: LCI e90 328xi

Excuse my non-baller/non-flush goals, but assuming 16x8, 120x5, CB 72.5 mm, ET 25 will fit, what would be the safe bet be in terms of the widest rubber I can fit under the normal fenders? I'd like to keep a decent sidewall for the bad roads over here. (235/40 would be an example of the narrowest sidewall I'd want to opt for).

Won't be running "wider than indicated" Starspecs or the likes, just a regular (higher) performance summer/all-season tire.

Thank you in advance to the fitment-gods on this forum.
