Need tire fitment advice

Hi guys, I just got some bbs replica wheels and I need to buy some tires to throw it on. Below are the specs:

18x8 et 35
18x9 et 40

E46 325i sedan:
My car is very low on race land coilovers (I plan on switching to better coilovers but for now this will have to do) and fenders are rolled.

Maybe a 235/40/18 n 255/35/18?
Or 225/40? not sure, advice is appreciated...

If your car is lowered more than 1.5", you may want to use the less aggressive 225/40R18 size up front. Rear can be either 255/35R18 or 245/35R18.
