2007 335xi wheel option?

Hoping for some feedback with those running 19in offset wheels on the e90 xi platform.

Looking at:
Front 19x9 ET35 on 235/35/19
Rear 19x10 ET25 on 265/30/19

This will be my first new set of wheels so I'm really new to this.

My car is the non sport sedan version and I dont want to modify the suspension or roll the fenders. My concerns are:

1. Is 19x9 too big to run up front? Does anyone currently have any experience running these without modifying the suspension or fenders?

2. Is the offset of any concern?

3. Being All-wheel drive I've read alot of conflicting statements about not running the same size tire will damage the transfer system. Would this setup not work for my car then as I was told that the difference in height between the 2 sets is .3 inches and some speculate that it needs to be less than .1 inches but again I'm not able to discern if this is credible.

Thanks again for anyone that can shed some light on this topic for me.

I'm running this setup on e92 xi with no problems, front rubs slightly to the oil cooler grille at full turns but no rubbing when driving, e90 have a lot more space in the rear so you can probably go even lower offsets in rear but 25 should be no problem ... I'm dropped on kwv3's as well and still no rubbing.

You are fine with these tire sizes, can even run 245/275 combo or 235/275 combo if you wana go more aggressive.

Great thanks for the feedback.

So you've had no problem at all with the all wheel drive system and running that much of a variance in diameter than?
