ET35 front is fine with 235 tires. A lot of people use ET33 rear on the e92/e93. ET30 rear is no problem on the e90 ( 265 tires ). I use ET40 rear on my e93 and 275 tires. No issues.

The Breyton Race GTS are 19x8.5 ET30 (front) and 19x9.5 ET35 (rear). Is that a typo?

That should be ok. I have 19x8.5 ET30 front, 19x10.5 ET30 rear but with fender work on the rear.

What's the exact model of your vehicle- E46 or E9x? The E90's fenders have more space so it's able to run more aggressive offsets than the E92. Most of the time E90 offsets will not work on the E92.

I love my ET25 offset. It required just a little fender rolling. Literally, just a little. I don't think I would track with it but everyday driving, I do not rub at all.

here's my setup:
BBS LM-R 19 x 8.5 et 32 running Toyo T1R 235/35/19
BBS LM-R 19 x 9.5 et 25 running Toyo T1R 265/30/19

Link to E90 with et 32 all around.
http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=139718

However, I am running KWV2s on setting 9 of 18 in the rears. It's a little stiffer than stock, but the ride is great.

If I were to do it again, I probably would go with et 28 in the front. I still have room.

My 2 cents.

Best offset for E92 is 33 on the rear. 30 will cause rubbing issues with a lot of tire brands and models.
