Cool will this fit? Please comment

Hi All,
Ok just picked up a 2006 118i for the mrs for a great price and purchased a set of 19 inch wheels for it too. So before i go ahead and order the tires just want to make sure it all fits.

Front
235/35 R19x8.5 Ep38
Rear
265/30 R19x9 Ep 38

Im flexible with the tyre sizes but id like to get the widest tyre possible and i dont mind if i have to roll the guards.

Thanks all.

yes my last 118i had these rim size and tyres

a bit tight but they fit...in the wet (heavy rain) not enough clearance for water to get out of wheel guards.... I eventually switched back to 18" as braking in the wet can be a bit dangerous when water can't escape the guards / wheel arches

they definitely look good
