E92 Most flush, lowered, with rolled fenders

So I've got a 2009 335i, and I'm looking to fit the widest tires to be as flush as possible with the body on a set of VMR V710's all while being lowered on a set of KW V2s.

I've scoured the internet, but I haven't been able to find a straight answer. The setup I'm planning on running are

19 x 8.5 et 35 on a 235/35/19

and

19 x 9.5 et 33 on a 265/30/19

Is this as flush as I can possibly get it without rubbing while only lowered enough to eliminate the gap? Can I increase the wheel width/offset or add any spacers?

Bonus: What about without the fenders rolled?

With those offsets I think you have room for a spacer (maybe up to 10mm?), BUT my experience is with pre-LCI sedan, which allows for wider offsets/fitment, so may not be fully accurate for you.

Why not go with those sizes, then see how much of a spacer you can add based on the gap that's left?

Found a thread that helped:

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1004953

I might head this route and see how the fitment is with

19x9.5 et33 with 235/35/19

19x10 et25 with 265/30/19

But, I don't believe I'd be able to drop the suspension at all and still have no rub.

Edit: just saw an example in that thread with one user able to drop it by a decent amount.

'08 335i w/ M3 #220 wheels, 8.5x19 ET29, Michelin 235x35x19 front & 9.5x19 ET23, 265x30x19 rear. It was already lowered when I bought it so I have no idea what was done , although I wish it was a little higher in the rear. Yesterday I cleaned the trunk out & it raised it between 5/16"-3/8" in the rear. I even took the spare out but ordered a space saver spare. As expected the tires rubbed in the rear at first so I flared the fenders by putting a baseball bat between the tire & the fender & drove back & forth....

you will need to shave the fenders and will be super flush even lowered

You should probably look for someone who's had a lot of wheels and be deemed fitment king or something on the forums. He/She may be able to answer all those.

We have tested quite few wheel fitments on the E92 3 series and know that a 9" ET30 is a direct fit up front with 255 tires. Therefore, when comparing that to the 8.5" ET35 you should be able to run a 12mm spacer up front. In the rear, many of our E92 customers run a 9.5" ET22 with a small fender roll. Therefore, you should be able to run a 10mm or 12mm spacer in the rear as well with your 9.5" ET33 wheels. Fender roll would be recommended.
