I recommend that you stop referring to wheels as "rims" for a start. Secondly, the rears will not fit your 2011 without rolling the shit out of the rear fenders.

I recently put e46 M3 fitment wheels on my e90. The rear wheels are
19x9.5 +22 offset. Im running 265/30/19 tires. I had my fenders rolled before putting the wheels on. If my fenders werent rolled, I think Id have major rubbing. So with a fender roll I think you should be just fine.
