will M3 220M front rims fit on all 4 corners?

The rims are 19x8.5 et. 29

Will I be able to fit these as a non-staggered fit on an F30?

I don't see why they wouldn't, but I'd have to research to be certain because of the offset. They're not wide rims so I suspect they would unless you went with a super tall tire.

You're able to fit 19x9 on the front without issue with a slightly less aggressive ET than that so I suspect it would work. (I'm being a slacker and not looking it up, but I'm sure someone else will chime in with experience and say for certain.

The reason I ask is because I already have a set of 4, but the rears don't seem like they would fit. 9.5 inch ET 22, but I could try and buy a pair of fronts and then use 4 fronts all around.

Stock is 19x8 ET 34 front and 19x8.5 ET 47?
220M is 19x8.5 ET 29 (all around)

Does that help?

They will 100% work, front and rear. 245's all around would be nice

do you think 245 all around would be better than the standard 225/255 stagger setup? In terms of grip and feel?

Oh yeah, the squared set up will have much better grip...in terms if feel, the steering wheel should have a little more weight to it as well

225/40/19 is the stock spec tire size for 19" wheels on the F30. Even though the M3 wheels are .5" wider than the stock F30 19's, the tire size will work. I was considering doing the same thing and running four 19X8.5 front M3 wheels and in the rear putting a 255/35/19 tire, which is again the stock tire size for F30's M-Sport rear wheels

It should work. This guy did 4 front Competition M3 wheels on his F30.

So instead, you put e46 M3 rims? Staggered like e46 M3 OEM?

Just attempted a test fit, and it baarely fits. The rim is about flush, but the tire might stick out by a couple mm. So just to let everyone know 8.5ET29 is probably the max you can fit, in the back it worked fine though. Not sure how that guy fit those 9 inch ZCP rims, haha
