Help Please on Wheel fitment

Hi All,
I'm thinking of buying a wheel for my winter set.
The specs are located on the wheel are:
8 1/2J x 17 H2 ET 15 LK12

Would that fit my E90 328i sedan or is that too aggressive and required a fender rolling?
Currently has a H&R Sport Spring with Standard Suspension.

Thanks for any of your advice.

8.5 et 15 is too aggressive especially for the front.

That's what I thought too.
Thanks much for your feedback.

Agreed. Stick with ET30-40 or so.
