Apex Arc-8 tire fitment question.

I recently purchased 18 8.5 ET38 - 18 9.5 ET35 for my pre LCI E90. My car is lowered about an inch both front and rear on H&R coilovers. Can I go with 245/40/18 and 275/35/18 Michelin PSS tires without rolling the fenders? I am leaning on wider rear tire option for maximum traction.

275/35 may be too tall. I'd go 275/30 to be safe

35 height ratio is the correct one for rear 18 inch wheels. 30 is for 19inch.
