Those are 18x8 and 18x9 ET14 and ET18 respectively.
the fronts will fit, with a 225/40 or 215/35 tire. The rears will need a fender roll and maybe a pull, with a 225/40 or 215/35 tire.
Its gonna rub with the 245s especially if theyre not rolled.

That's a crazy offset! He might still rub with 225 on the rears.

Too big of a headache to deal with. Just find some 3 series or 5 series wheels

Just run 225/40 tires you'll be fine. I'm guessing they are 8 wide.

20 offset with 8" wide rims is literally flush with fenders.
Heres my car on E60 18s with 245s before i sold it.

see how its full out flush and how chunky the tire is?

They are the xxr 18x8.75 with 20 offset, they also have them in 35 offset but I just want it to poke out a little more than how I have it now without having to roll fenders or anything extra also not looking to drop the car either

Those were 18x8 ET20, iirc, off a E60 530i the 245/45/18s Dunlop runflats they came with were too chunky. Even with my rolled and slightly pulled fenders the rears rubbed. Oddly enough the fronts didnt.
They would have been on point with a set of 235/35s... so OPs setup is gonna poke out 10mm up front, which is an easy fix with the 215 tires, and the rears will poke out about the same poke more, 10mm or so... so if his fenders arent folled and maybe slightly pulled, he absolutly HAS TO run stretched tires and maybe will still rub then.
