will these wheels fit and what size tire??

Hey guys I'm new here and also new to BMW's. Since I got the car maybe a month ago I have put intake exhaust subs and lowered it 2 inches with springs. Now I'm wanting wheels and found a staggered set of 18" that are 18 x 8.5 and 18 x 9.5 both etc 35 and hub is 73mm. Will these fit and what size tire do I need I like the fatter tires in the rear also! Thank you so much in advance!

You will want a higher offset in the rear and you will most likely have rubbing issues. The fronts should fit just fine with a 225/40/18 tire.

What do you mean by higher offset? And what would the tire size need to be in the rear?
