NEED HELP picking the right size rim for my stock tires.

I have a 08' 335i Sedan. I am planning on changing the rims but keeping the stock tires. I have little to no knowledge of how rims and tires and their fittings work.
The current rims on my car are 18".

The front stock tires are 225/40/R18 88w while the rear stock tires are 255/35/R18 90w

I am looking at Avant Garde M359 rims.
The Front rims are 18x8.5 5x120 ET35
The Rear rims are 18x9.5 5x120 ET33

I chose those rims online, I was wondering if what I chose was correct and will properly fit my stock tires? Is there anything wrong with this setup? Am I going to get any rubbing or will my km/h be off etc. I think the rear rim of the Avant Garde is smaller than my rear tire, what effect will that have on my car and ride?

Hey not sure if you already purchased these but don't worry. The rims will fit perfectly fine with your existing tires.

As a matter of fact we have some 18" specials running right now for $375/set! That price is supposed to be if you are buying tires too...but I can set you up with that deal if you want to do the install and balance with us for $100.

I'll also throw in free storage for your off-season wheels Just ask for Karl!
