Question, hit a huge curb!

i hit a massive curb not paying attention cracked my front wheel in half, and bent the crap out of my rear wheel, so i think i need new wheels i have the regular 189's and i was thinking of getting new wheels all in all.
found these on ebay.
i understand that the rear wheels are wider on a 335i.
if i was to buy these
http://www.ebay.com/itm/18-M3-Compet...#ht_5927wt_976
would they be the right wheels because my tires are still good and i want to reuse them, but if i order these I'm afraid the the front tires will be the same as the rear tires, i know they are measurements and off set but I'm clueless .
and i do want to keep my rear tires wide.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you have 225/40/18 front and 255/35/18 rear they will fit perfectly on those wheels.

Also for the price I'd probably go for it. You shouldn't have problems with 18s.

There are good reps and bad ones. Unfortunately, when buying on Ebay you never know "which" rep you're buying because they very rarely state which company they come from. But, like others have stated, 18's should be fine unless you live in a heavily pot-hole'd area (or continue to hit curbs at high speed). Good luck.

thank you I'm probably going to go ahead and order them, i don't usually hit curbs actually i have never hit a curb in my life! not even scratched my wheels by driving!!i was paying zero attention looking at a ferrari on the service road as i was taking a highway ramp hit the island head on bending a bunch of SH*T in my suspension, The huge BANG got his attention though
i actually cracked one of my almost clean into 2 wheels.
