VMR VB3 questions?

Hey guys I've just ordered a set of VMR VB3 in hyperblack 19's 8.5F & 9.5R. The car its going on is a E46 318ci Msport 2004. I went to my local tyre man and he said that he can get me continental tyres for the back but fittiment is 255/30/19Rear & 235/35/19Front. I was just wondering would this combination be ok for these wheels? Also can you recommend me some good tyre brands for the wheels? Thanks guys

That combination is perfect. Why didn't you get the OEM CSL's?

What offsets are the wheels? Everything looks perfect pending offsets.

bartenderplease thanks for all your help but this thread will explain it: ***65532;Cracked Rims!! To buy or not to buy
And lastly the rims have been ordered specifically to fit my 318ci. Msport 2004. So I'm guessing its the normal offset that fits my car.

Sounds like the shop knows what they are doing but if you can find out the offsets, we can confirm. They will also be imprinted on the back of the wheel spoke.

If you ordered the 8.5 +40 front and 9.5 +45 rear, you are golden! This will be a direct bolt-on fitment at stock height.

8.5 +35 front would be fine, but the 9.5 +35 rear with a 255 will cause a problem with rubbing on the fender lip.
