Advice Needed -- 220 19" 8.5" M3 Wheels

Hi - I am looking for some advice. Will 4 rims all size 19" x 8.5" OEM 220 style wheels fit on my E90 without rolling fenders or specialty work. I know the wider rear M3 19" rims would require rolling, but what about 2 sets of 8.5" wide rims? Would the front fenders need any specialty work or rolling? Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thx

They're 19x8.5 ET29, so will fit fine.

ET is the same as the offset of the wheel.

OK, thanks. Here is some more specific info.

Front Dia. from 25.09 to 25.75, -1mm clearance from strut, extend +11mm
Rear Dia from 25.03 to 27.75, +8mm more clearance from strut, extent +8mm

How confident are you that these new 19s will fit? They have 245/35 tires on them.

I really appreciate any help.
