19x9.5 +25 on a 265 might work since you are at stock height. If you ever decide to lower, you'll most definitely need to roll the fenders. We've had a few guys running aggressive M3 9.5" +22 on 265's with rubbing issues.

Front fitment should be fine, but may need a very gently fender roll depending on ride height. As far as the rear, that is definitely going to need to be rolled and possibly pulled slightly.

He's not dropped, so he probably won't need to roll his fenders...

I'd go with 235/35 and 265/30. No need for 245 on the 8" wide front wheel or 275 on an ET25 rear wheel.
