Little wheel help please

I've spent about 10 days searching, and I still don't feel comfortable placing this order.

2011 335xi sedan, stock suspension, no drop.

Wheels specifically are:

Morr VS8.2

19 x 8.5 ET35 with 235/35
19 x 10 ET36 with 275/30

I'm concerned about the rears. Looks to be about 10mm less room on the strut side. To me it "looks" like it will be fine.

Will it?

Again, no drop, stock suspension.

Thanks.

Should be fine on stock height, my friend is running similar setup on his 2010 e90 i believe his rear off set is 19 x 10 38mm 275/30.. i am sure that 2mm won't make a huge difference.

From your id, your probably have the ruby black w/oyster.....

I had the exact same setup you are contemplating on my '10 335i. My tires were Continental ExtremeContact DW - they have a slightly rounder sidewall profile and they fit just great. See here:

Keep in mind that not all 275s are created equal. A tire with a more square sidewall profile (like Bridgestone RE-11 or Michelin PSS) will be different, but I don't think you will have problems.

BINGO! Apparently my search skills are not as fine tuned as I thought. That is exactly what I was looking for. And that is exactly the wheel, Smoked Titanium. Thanks for finally sealing the deal for me!

Oh, and my id....I never even made that connection believe it or not. Would have been good though if I did have the ruby black/oyster. But I have Jerez Black. Not sure what I was thinking when I came put with that handle.

Outstanding! Thank you for the confirmation. I just ordered them.

It's gonna be a loooong 4-6 weeks, but I'm betting it'll be worth the wait!
