Thanks for replying!

I have a set of 9.5x18's already so I'm going to work with them first. The 275 tires should fit ok - the RE01R's in 265/35 have the same section-width as 275/35's do (10.7"), just a narrower tread. The RE01R's fit with lots of room to spare so I think the 275's will be ok too. On the tracks I go to, the front tires get beat up the most - the car's balanced with a square setup so I'm staying with it.

From the measurements I've done, 25mm offset rims are about perfect for the E9x M3 chassis both front and rear.

Tire rack has the TR Motorsports MT1 rims in 10"x18 ET25 for a reasonable price - it's what I'd get if I didn't already have the 9.5's.
