Exclamation HELP with tire size! BBS LM wheels

Hi I looking into getting a set of BBS LM wheels for my e92 m3 and would like to get opinions or tire sizes.

Wheels are 8.5' 32mm offset front
10' 25mm offset rear

Tire rack recommends getting 255/35/19 front
275/35/19 rear

I wanted to go a little wider since I have a vt 625 kit on the way and could use the added grip!

Thing is I don't want to deal with tires rubbing and what not, any input would be appreciated.

Thanks
Alex

I would definitely get the 9.5 vs the 8.5 for the front.

If u go with 8.5, at least get the et17, et32 u will need to run spacers to make them flush, but I'd go with 9.5/11 combo.
