Can I run a square set up on my 2011 335is without any modifications? What would the square set up be?

Thanks!

18 or 19x8.5 ET35 would work. The rears won't be super flush or anything though.

we got a few 19x8.5 5x120 35et and we can also offer you the rears 19x8.5 5x120 in a lower et so atleast the set up on the back looks more flush to the fender line just like the front. basically it would be something like this
fronts: 19x8.5 5x120 35et 72.56b rears: 19x8.5 5x120 30et 72.56b
this will eliminate any spacer requirements.

Unfortunately, you wouldn't be able to rotate the wheels front and back, just left to right.

You can't do that if the tyres have direction of rotation .

That 5mm still doesn't make it flush at rear. If normally 19x9.5 et35 is recommend to use rear without any modification, with those 19x8.5 et30 he could still add 10mm spacer or more, depends on the tyre size.

Also 19x8.5 et30 will work at front too.

Could I run a 265x35x19 tire on these 8.5" rims?

you guys are definitely correct normally we would run just 19x8.5 5x120 35et all around
this will let the client rotate if need be, the only reason i mention the change of off set is simply because i understood that the customer wanted to be flush to the quarter panel line so is just a offering, i would simply suggest to run a staggered set.

I wouldn't run that tire size, as it's too tall. If you went with a 265/30/19, it's too wide for the wheel.
