this is the best tool for making these calculations....

first of all, I wouldn't recommend a narrower wheel like that, its important to have wider wheels that support the sidewalls fully. BMW engineers in slightly stretched wheels/tires which IMO help decrease body roll and aid in steering sharpness. so I would highly recommend at least a 9/10 inch width, especially with a 255/275 tire.

that said, here are the results.

fronts will be 8mm more aggressive than stock (should definitely fit and be noticeably more aggressive, but not overly aggressive.

rears will be 12mm more aggressive than stock, and look about right.

again, I wouldn't recommend narrower wheels, but it can be done and it will fit.

its hard to say what the most aggressive fitment is, because we don't know how much more offset the car can take and still fit in the fenders. it also depends on if you will lower your car etc....
