E46 m3 wheel fit help

Hey guys I'm looking to get a pair of Varrstoen ES1 wheels and had some question about the fit. I want to run 19x9.5 +20 and 19x11 +25 5x120. 275/30/19 and 235/35/19. Will I rub with these specs? I'm trying to avoid getting my fenders cut or rolled.

Those offsets will fit an M3 perfectly. They're pretty much text book.
You can run 275 maybe even 285 at the rear and probably 255 up front but safely with 245s.

Thanks, im actually a new owner. just bought my car last week and loved the color combo. Ive heared from others that, the setup is way to wide and will stick out from the fender so i jsut wanted to make sure the setup would work.

Maybe not textbook but if you're going 11s. ET25 is where is wanna start. Then u can space out more.
Mine are gonna be ET10 or 15. Depending on which math is correct, and that's poked out.
Worse case you'll need 5-10mm spacers, or you'll run inside on the actual inner body, but I doubt it.
