255/35R18 is very aggressive up front on a non-M E46. A few have gotten away with it but many have reported rubbing with that size.

Although they make some good models, I do not see any Hankook tires priced at $69 each in 225/45R17. Can you post the model of Hankook tire that you're referring to?

In size 325/30R21, the only street tires made are run flat tires. If your reason for hating run flats is due to ride complaints, you do not want to use 21" wheels.
