F30 335i wheel size help

I'm not too knowledgeable on wheel offsets and such, but I have a buddy willing to sell me his BBS in these sizes:

19x8.5 ET32
19x9.5 ET32

I'm lowered on Dinan Springs, and I'm planning on using the OE 19 wheel sizes

225/40/R19
255/35/R19

Any ideas if this setup would rub or cause problems?

Thanks.

The front is fine, the rear however is aggressive for F30!

Have a look at MadZarBMR's setup: f30.bimmerpost.com
F: 8.5x19" ET32, 225/40-19
R: 9.5x19" ET35, 255/35-19

Your rear wheels will extend an additional 3mm.

You might be okay but it's gonna be close in the rear. I have a 10" +38 on the rear of my F36, with a 275/35/20 and it's pretty snug. However F32/F36 has a little more clearance in the rear than an F30

If it's your buddy, why not just throw the wheels on the car to make sure they fit?

Any problems normally with the rear sticking out that much? I do some track days from time to time, I'm worried the rear would rub on the fenders when cornering.

And I'm currently 4 hours away from him unfortunately, I was going to go pick it up during my summer vacation from work, and I don't want to pop by and then decide not to buy them when he could sell it at a much higher price to others, he's currently putting it on hold for me, so I was seeing if it would fit, if not I'll just let him know.

You might need to run a little camber in the rear so as not to rub on the fender

Thanks for the help!

I'll probably let him know to sell to someone else, I'll probably get something else, I'll stick to ET38-ET42 in the rear so I don't have to worry about anything rubbing or something haha.

Odd... my rear offsets are more aggressive than MadZarBmr's et+35, but they don't poke nearly as much (poke is only a few mm's). But definitely no rubbing.

19x9.5 et+30 265/30/19

I will say that i'm lowered by 2.5 inches (have around ~1 finger gap), which will cause more natural camber, so maybe thats the difference?

My car is an F36, so I don't have any actual first hand experience with an F30....Only that i know the F36's have a few more mm clearance in the rear
