Tires/ clearance for new wheels

I'm new to the forum and recently purchased a set of used wheels for my 2011 335i coupe E92. Fronts are 20x9.5 rears are 20x10.5 I'm not sure what size tire I should put on these things. The tires I have looked at have a (W) speed rating witch seems to be fine and load 95 in front & 97 in rear. That part I'm not 100% on. The size I was looking at 245/35/zr20 front & 275/30zr20 rear. Does this sound correct or am I missing anything. Also clearance issues? Before I bought the wheels I looked on the website and they said they would fit the 3 series. Thanks for any insight.

I usually buy my tires from Tire Rack. If you call them they'll help and give you suggestions on any rim OEM or aftermarket. The tires usually come with a warranty and fast shipping.

245/35 and 275/30 is what i ran and i had the m-sport suspension that comes on the m-package and only rubbed when i would turn left on the passenger side fender liner where the oil cooler is but when the tires were used up it wouldn't really do it much and isn't so serious the rubbing so you should be fine

I run 245/30/20 in front and 285/25/20 in the rear on my coupe. I had minimal rubbing in the rear on bumps when I had people in the back seat. I had the fenders rolled and there has been no rubbing since.
