Style 249 on e92 335i

I've searched and searched for someone running this setup. I'm my mind I think it will work. Style 249s are 19x8.5 et14 and 19x9 et14. I'm thinking a 225/35/19 in the front and a 255/30/19 in the rear. I have shaved fenders in the rear, no camber plates but pulled the alignment pins to get -1.5 camber in the front. What do you guys think? Doable or will I need more camber? Also if anyone has pics of this setup please post

Since you have already done fender work and have front camber you should be just fine. Go for it, maybe consider getting narrower front tyre like 215/35/19, maybe even narrower rear tyre and push rear more out with spacers.
Closest i could find is this e90 with m6 wheels http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=598490

You're right. They should have used 235/35-19s or 245/35-19s in the front. (245/40's are outside then recommended variance.)
