Wheel offset question for e92 M-Sport

I have a stock-ride-height 2011 e92 M-Sport and am looking at Alufelgen rims in 19 x 8.5 ET 35 front and 19 x 9.5 ET 35 rear with 225/40/19 tires front and 255/35/19 tires rear. Do you think these would fit well with no fender roll? Or would a fender roll be necessary?

Would I need spacers at all?

Thanks!

Tyres are wrong aspect ratio. 225/35/19 and 255/30/19 or 235/35/19 and 265/30/19 would be correct. Wheel specs wont require fender roll.

Thanks MonacoBlue! The increased tire sidewall with 225/40/19's and 255/35/19's wouldn't mess anything up though right? Other than riding a little softer and not looking quite as low profile? I realize it may mess up the speedo reading a few mph but I don't care about that. Would it cause rubbing or any other real issues?

Thanks again for the help!

Can't say 100% sure, but i think you wont have rubbing issues with "wrong" sized tyres. Since you aren't that low and the wheel specs aren't that aggressive. Also the i think the speedo will be more accurate with those tyres.

It's hard to say for sure, but since OP is stock height, he probably won't rub. Maybe over a large bump he would, but again we can't say for sure. And yes, the speedo will be more accurate with larger tires.
