OEM E90 wheel specs are 19x8.5 ET29, 19x9.5 ET23; so they're not OEM if they're +45 offset.
You should have no issues with 19x9 ET45 and a 255.

My setup is:
18x8 ET35 225/40
18x9 ET32 245/35 (rolled guards)

Offset depends on wheel width, normal staggered fitment that most people with aftermarket wheels run on an E46 is 8.5" Front and 9.5" rear, with offsets around 35 and 40-45 respectively. Just depends how aggressive you want to go.
