Wheel / Tire size question for an e90 335xi

My 335xi is arriving next week with the 162 rims and I am looking to replace with a more aggressive setup that will be tracked a few times a year. This will be my daily driver and I plan on tuning the car and doing KW v3 coilovers.

So, I have basically decided to get 18" BBS RS-GT's with PS2's (non-runflat). Here are my questions:

1) What is the most aggressive 18" set-up I can run? What width size rims and tires?

2) Should I run non-staggered? For example, 255/35's all around?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Although these are on backorder for at least 3 months (likely longer) they are produced in 18X8.5" for the front and 18X9 for the rear.

This will allow you to use 235/40R18 up front and 265/35R18 rear.

Alternately you could run a non-staggered 18X8.5" all around with 235/40R18.
