Widest tires under stock body???

For an E92 M3 coupe, what is the widest rim-tire combo you can run without flaring the fenders or rubbing......

I saw a pic of an M3 with custom 20" rims and 315 wide rear tires that looked SWEET.....

Since the car comes with 245 front tires on 8.5" rims with only 29mm offset (not much) I'm thinking that a 9.5" higher offset front rim should work...which would allow up to a 275-285 front tire..... An 11" rear rim with 315 rears would be great too....has anyone tried it?

I keep thinking a 275-285 front with a 295-315 rear tire would really imporve the handling (not that its bad now)
