wheel gurus

What would be a better fit on an E90 M3 (I know neither is the ideal) for no rubbing but still achieving a flush look.

I am lowered on RD SPort springs.

F) 18x10 et 25
R) 18x10 et 25...maybe a 5mm spacer

F) 18x8.5 et 38...xxmm spacer
R) 18x10 et 25...maybe 5mm spacer

Also, what tire sizes would you recommend?

I'm not a guru but I do know 9" +17 in the front is perfectly flush, while 10" +20 is perfectly flush in the rear.

f)18x10 +25 leave it
r)18x10 +25 +5mm spacer

f)18x8.5 +20-25mm spacer would give the flush look but many argue going over 15mm is a bad idea
r)18x10 +25 +5mm spacer

245/40/18 front (255/40/18 front if you want less understeer but may have a chance to rub on full lock to lock)

275/40/18 rear (285/40/18 but may rub depending on how square the tire is)

I'm personally not a fan of 275/35/18 in the rears because the tires and the overall wheel/tire look too small and a bit "dinky"
