Also i would appreciate if someone used them and has anything to share in terms of it being a good choice or not, thanks.
As far as I know, HRE custom makes its wheels, so you can spec it to whatever works on your car. They've also done a ton of wheels for the M3 and will have no problem building you a set that works.

No rubbing, no issues with the computer, just pure fun. These are probably the grippiest tires that will still allow you to drive to the track. The only thing better would be full slicks (40 treadwear).
+1 on the wheel set up. You may want a 5-10 mm spacer to push the rear wheels out a little, but not required.

This 18x10 ET25 set up also works because of tire availability. One of the most common tires to use is 275/35/18 (check tirerack)... from street tires to DOT-R.
