Style 296 on E90 Help

I am able to buy a set of style 296 for around $600. They are pretty much brand new. I know in their current condition they go for around $1,200. So I'm really interested in buying these.

Has anyone seen style 296 on a E90? Would it look good??
I also did the calculation on here from my 16" stockers to these and it says the 296 will extend out 18mm from the outter edge of the wheel to the fenders in the rear. Some reason i think that numbers off.
Could anyone help me with this so I can get the right fitment and wont have any rubbing issues? I'm also lowered on KW V1.

Fronts: 8X19 ET:29
Rears : 9X19 ET:40

Thanks in advance!

Edit:

I figure i would reuse my thread instead of making multiple threads on tires and wheels. I need help finding the right tire size.
I have a few setups in mind but im not sure which would look/ perform the best. Mind you the roads here are terrible. Also if you wouldnt mind in directing me which brand of tire i should get. I mostly want summer performance tires since i will be using my stockers for the winter. I went to a local tire dealer today and the sales rep was not much help as he just handed me brochures to browse.

f: 225/35
r: 255/30

f: 225/40
r: 255/35 Would the tires be too tall??

f: 235/35
r: 265/30

If you have any other suggestions please let me know.

-Max

I saw this the other day as well. And i thought they looked pretty nice too. I'm just undecisive if i should get 19s or 18s. I dont want my car to feel "sluggish" with a heavier set of wheel.

Any more pics of your new setup? Did you end up running spacers in the rear? What tire size did you end up going with? I really like the look of these wheels.

Thank you! Heres the thread to the mini shoot. I ended up with 15mm spacers in the rear. 235/35f 265/30r. I wish the wheels were an inch wider tho.
