Staggered 19" VZ15 on E90 AWD?

I'm looking ar purchasing a set of Hypersilver 19" Velocity VZ15 with a staggered setup on my 2007 E90 328xi. I just wanted to make sure the following setup will run fine with no issues, especially rubbing.

Front: 19x8.5 et 38 ( 235/35/19 tires)
Rear: 19x9.5 et 30 ( 265/30/19 tires)

If I dont do this setup I was thinking of going with the same wheels with 19x8.5 all around with a et 40 and 235/35/19. Would this be a better setup with the 40 offset?

Also, do the stock wheel bolts work on these wheels or do new ones need to be purchased? Any information would be helpful!

Both setups would work perfectly on your car. I would personally go with the staggered rears as they will sit better inside the fender than the non staggered setup. If you do non staggered, run a set of 8mm spacers in the rear to push it out a bit more.

The stock lug nuts will transfer right over to these new wheels as well.

Go with the 8.5/9.5 staggered set up, you will love it and it will work fine on your ride. You will regret going 8.5 all around. Unless tire and wheel rotation is absolutely necessary.
