Anyone running E9x M3 tire sizes on the E46 M3? (245/35-19 front and 265/35-19 rear)

Or 245/40-18 front, 265/40-18 rear.

Preferably with 8.5" and 9.5" wheels, respectively. If so, please post photos!

How does it look? How bad is the front rake? Does the front wheel well look empty?
Any performance Side effects? (unusual handling, DSC going crazy, etc.)

Sorry or the confusion. I'm specifically looking for people running greater diameters in the rear.. The E9x OEM fitment is an example. 245 front, 265 rest, same aspect ratio. So the rears are taller

I ended up getting an extra set of wheels with my E90. I tried to fit them 2 days ago and it rubbed like a mother. But I'm on the H&R sport cups. I believe they are going to work with my fenders rolled. I also had pretty decent size spacers on. They are 19in, 265 in the rear.

^^ No amount of fender rolling will make those wheels fit (unless of course those spacers were gigantic)
