Question Wheel Fitment 330i ZHP

This probably a pretty common question, but will these wheels fit on my 2004 330i ZHP?
I'm currently running Michelin Pilot Super Sports 225/40Z18 on the front and 255/35Z18 on the back, and just want a new wheel for a change
Will VMR V710 fit my current tires?
http://www.ebay.com/itm/18x8-5-VMR-V...-/371515036216
These are the ones that I'm looking at, my only concern is that I can't find them in 18x8, and I'm almost positive that my front wheels(style 135) are 18x8. Will 18x8.5 fit all around the car?
Thanks guys, a lot of questions I know, but I would really appreciate some help

The short answer is yes, an 18x8.5 wheel is an easy fit. The 255 tire makes it a bit more complicated in the rear depending on your ride height and whether or not you are willing to roll the fender lips.

I'm now running an 18x8.5 et35 225-40-18 combo on the front of my 330i with no issues at all. Depending on ride height, that same 18x8.5 et35 will be pretty tight on the rear with a 255 tire unless you do a fender roll. The 255 might not rub at stock ride height, but if you are lowered at all, it will likely rub a bit.

Thank you so much, I think I'm going to end up rolling my rear fenders either way. And I am currently lowered so maybe some ride height adjustment is in order

If you are going to roll the fenders anyway, then why not do the 18x9.5 et45 size in the rear? I think it would actually fit better with the 255 tire because it would pull the centerline of the tire inwards and reduce the outside tire bulge.
