Raderwerks wheels on e92

Alrighty, I have been debating for a while w to do the whole black on white theme, or go more classy and go anodized/polished on white. I think I have decided (for now) to go with black. I'm trying to figure out what these wheels might look like (or if they will fit) on my e92 335i. The car has the sport package, but it is not lowered or anything.

^ that is for ;tldr but, this is the link to the site:
http://www.raderwerks.com/product/m-ten80-bk

These wheels are available in:
18x8.0 F / 18x9.0 R
5x114/120
ET18 F / ET21 R .

AND

18x8.0 F / 18x9.0 R
5x114/120
ET38 F / ET40 R .

Which (if any) would give the best stance or look best? Is it safer to go with the 38/40 and add spacers?

Thanks!

Good looking wheels but the sizes and offsets are very weak.

Although not an E92 or a BMW for that matter, but I loved the way those wheels looked on my Audi A4 some years ago. May even reorder a set for my E90. I got lots of compliments on them.

wow, those look good, and I talked to somebody (didn't catch his name :/) @ sonic tuning today (solid guy/business) and he seemed to indicate that the ET18 F / ET21 R will look good. I'm sorta used to a little rubbing, but will those rub all around? Using 225/40/18F. 255/35/18R.

18x8.0 (+18) will sit 6mm inside the fender
18x9.0 (+21) will sit 9mm inside the fender
Depending on how much of a stance look you want. You can be safe and do 5mm spacer up front and 10mm in the rear. That'll keep you pretty safe with front being 1mm inside the fender and rear being 1mm past the fender. If you want more aggressive, you can run 12mm up front and 15mm in the rear and this will put you 6mm past the fender in the front and 4mm past the fender in rear.

Hopes this helps

P.S. If you want a real stance look you will need to lower your car. If you don't lower your car, the set up will look out of place and not eye catching in the way you would want it. Just FYI

Solid advice man, thanks! I am from the vw scene, so I am totally familiar with rubbing all over. But that up your suggesting won't rub at all will it? I have been told that my car is lowered. I'm the 3rd owner, but it looks lower than most other 335is I have seen. Picture for consideration:

from this angle I can't tell if you car is lowered or not. If you want less chance for rubbing I say go with the:
18x8.0 (+18) will sit 6mm inside the fender (add the 5mm spacer) use a 215 tire
18x9.0 (+21) will sit 9mm inside the fender (add the 10mm spacer) use a 245 tire
