Tire fitments?

I'm looking to get a set of 18 x 8 front, 18 x 9 rear M5 replicas... My question is what size tires should I wrap these in?
Would a 215 be too narrow with a 40 aspect on the 8" wide front? I certainly don't want that bulging look on the tire, nor do i want that stupid stretched tire look... or would 225 be ok?
And what about the rear tire fitment then?
A 235/40 or a 245/35?

225/40R18 up front and 255/35R18 rear. Make sure the wheels are the correct offset.
