Will 235/40/18 ET20 rub on pre-lci? @UPDATE PICS

I am new here, so at first i would like to greet everyone

My aim is to fit style 32's from 7-series which are:
8x18 ET22 front and 9x18 ET20 rear

suspension is stock (non-M). Next year im buying eibach pro kit (30/25) to go lower. My colleagues from Poland are not sure, what tire specs should i choose to avoid rubbing. In my opinion 225/40 front and 255/35 rear, but maybe 235/40 or 245/40 would be better option for me?

thank you in advance.

yes works, its 8mm front and 5mm rears from being true flush to the fenders. Not bad for just throwing on wheels. 225/40 front and 255/35 rear i would use.

Sound good to me, it's basicly like running 12mm and 17mm spacers on OEM staggered 18". Go with 225/40 and 255/35 tires.
