What spacers will i need to sit flush on e92?

Got LC dynas from my 328xi.. thinking of putting them on the M when I get it in a few days.. question is what spacers would I need to make them sit as flush as possible?

Front is 19x8.5 (ET30) wrapped with 245/35/19
Rear is 19x10 (ET22) wrapped with 265/30/19

I know I can go more aggressive with both wheels and tires, but these are brand spanking new since I just got them for 328xi and ended up swapping out of my lease and picking up an M3.

So what do I need spacer wise gurus? (yes I searched, and I was unsuccessful)

TIA

You need the following spacers sizes for flush fitment on the E92 M:

18mm front

5mm spacer rear

That's right on the edge, but you should fine with 245/35/19 tires.

10mm spacers on the front should be great. I would leave the rears the same.

You may want to consider wrapping the rears in new rubber - your rear rolling diameter with 265/30 rubber is about a full inch smaller in diameter than the stock M3 rear fitment.
