Would need to know your offsets.
You will be better off getting a tape measure and measuring from the wheel face to your arch and deciding what you want from there.

I'd like some recommendations on this too. I'm getting new tyres next month, ditching the run flats and looking at upsizing to 235 and 265.

On an e92 would I be comfortable with 12mm front and rear with mv4 wheels?

Use the measuring technique given here:

to find out what size spacers you can use.

You'd be better off with 10mm all round,12mm on the rear gives you an offset of ET27 and with 265 tyres you might get rubbing with heavy loads,passengers or shite roads

Same true if you are running standard tyres front/rear (225/255)?

I'm running csl reps but mine are 8j 9j with 235's and 265's on my e90 m sport. I've just put 15mm on the rear and 12's on front and I think it perfect, looks spot on!

Means nothing without knowing what the offsets of the wheels are.
