2003 330i base sedan wheel fit question!

Found a deal in the following wheels and tires...

Front 225/40 R18 188 et 38 offset.
Rears 255/35 R18 18x9 et 40 offset.

Will these fit without any modifications????

I have a 2003 330i sedan with stock suspension and no rolling of my fenders...

Thanks a lot for any input!!!!

found these E46 OEM's with ET-values

these are 8J with ET47 (front) and 8.5J with ET50 (rear)

(can't find OEM's with 18 x 9J for E46 OEM)

so maybe your ET-values would be a bit too low, personally would stick to OEM-values, don't know if you risk touching the flares, if you'd still go for it, would first ask to see if they do fit

theoretically wider rear tyres would give you more understeer, don't think the E46 needs that (got same car!), then again haven't tried a setting like that
