If the hole pattern is what you say it is, these wheels will not fit your car. The hole pattern is 5x120 on BMWs.

Tire size, well, depends on the offsets, which are on the low end of the scale for our cars. I have the same car as you and I run 255/35/18 on all four corners with +42mm offset 18x8.5 wheels. I have minor rubbing in the rear with this setup, tho I'm lowered, I also have more negative rear camber than a stock sprung ZHP.

I think those 9.5 wide rears with an ET40 are going to limit your choices in tire width. Normally you'd run a 265/30/19 on that wheel I'd guess, but I think it's going to rub based on my experience. You can probably run a 235 on the front with no problems though.
