Wheel and tire choices! Looking for pics!

I have a 03 m3 I'm looking for a new set of wheels. I'd found some I like at 19x9.5 +35 for the front and 19x10 +20 rear. I'm lowered on eibach Springs and at the moment I'm running the dinan wheels. 19x9.5 +45 and 19x10 +35 with a 10mm spacer on the rear (+25) now it appears that the extra 5mm rear and 10mm front should have me sitting very close to flush but I'm a bit confused what to do for tire size. I currently run 275 30 and 265 30. I am having the alignment done at the shop when they put the wheels on and can have some camber added if needed but should I be getting smaller tires? I also am ordering some coilovers this fall so would like to take that into consideration as I plan to lower the front another 1/2" to level it with the rear. And pics of these offsets on e46 m3? How about tire size? Not too much of a stretch if possible. I don't like where the wheel pokes out way past the tires sidewall but a little stretch I don't think looks too bad.

I'm running 18 X 9.5 (+35) wheels on all four corners (ie: square set up) with 275/35-18 tires. It's track only.
