PICS: 18" staggered silver Rota Torque wheels on silver E90 ZSP

Here are my new Rota Torque wheels in hyper silver with Goodyear Eagle F1 All Seasons on my titanium silver 2006 325i with Sport Package suspension. Rear 18x9.5 et30 255/35-18, front 18.8.5 et30 225/40-18. I like them a lot, aggressive offset, flush fit with the fenders, rear rims are concave which accentuates the wider width of the rear tires, front rims are flat. Gap between tire and fender is about 2 and a half fingers. No rubbing at all over speed bumps and driveways. I went from a 19" setup to this 18" setup to get all-season tires for year-round traction in Chicago, lower unsprung weight and less rotational mass for better acceleration and cornering (my 19" ASA AR1 with General Exclaim UHPs are for sale in another thread). I'm sure many of you will suggest I lower the car, I'm fine with the way it is. Bought them from Zoeb, wheeldude.com, who was very helpful and addressed all my concerns before buying and post-sale too.

I like those wheels alot; your car looks great. Why did you go with 225/255 instead of 235/265? Would the wider tires rub?

I went with the stock 225/255 sizes because I think they look good enough, and since they're stock sizes the speedo should still be accurate. Besides, I drive in the snow during winter, didn't want to go too wide for that.

Update....
I've had the wheels on the car for a couple of weeks and a few hundred miles, I couldn't be happier, especially for the price. I went from my ASA AR1 19" wheels to these lightweight Rota Torque 18" wheels, acceleration has been improved, steering is noticeably lighter, ride is a tad softer, and still love the look. The only negative is that tire noise is slightly louder, but that's because of these particular tires, tirerack.com customers have also stated this.
