Need help with tire sizes/rims

Just threw on my LM reps yesterday, 18x8.5 et 35 (square set up). They're wrapped with 255/35/18 tires all around also. Stock suspension on a sedan (325i). Plan on getting an H&R Race Cup Kit in a couple of months so I'm asking this now so I can plan ahead.

I love the stance on the rear, it lines up perfectly with the fender. However on the front it pokes out a little bit too much, but I can live with it.

So it's obviously gonna rub in the front when I drop it, so what tire size should I go with on the front (I'm thinking a 225)?

What about the rear? Will it rub with the 255's back there?

Also I don't wanna roll the fenders so please take that into consideration.

Forgot to mention, if it helps I can try getting my hands on a decent camera (besides my camera phone pics) and post em up if that helps? Just let me know.

Without rolling, you might be able to fit 235 in the front and 245 in the back. I'm not very familiar with E46's but that's my guess!
