Man, you really need to find another vendor if this is the kind of advice they are giving you.

That tire size fitment isn't even close...

The overall diameter of a 245/35/20 tire is 26.8" which has zero chance of fitting the front axle of a E9xM3 without rubbing. (no matter which offset value you chose)

245/30/20 (25.8") is the correct tire size.
