235's onthe front 8.5" +45 with a 5mm spacer (+45 effectively) to clear the strut leaves zero clearance either side with coilovers, and JUST doesn't rub or poke.. You could do that 2mm more offset with either 225 or a teensy bit of camber safely

9.5 +45 with 245 rear (with a 40 profile, so a bit taller than stock) jjjuuuussst don't rub with the dampers wound up, a 255/35 would fit with a roll at worst... Main issue being the stock crappy guard liners with a nice drop, more than the guard itself on 245/40
Yeah wouldn't mind seeing some pictures help me decide. Possibly a tab poke defiantly has stretched tyres. On the rear shown in the rear photo he is running 18X9.5 ET30 225/35/18 which for me is to much stretch. I was thinking of running a 235 minimum.

I am currently running a 235 front +45 Fitment and its tight as.Then you suggest adding a 5mm spacer..... The guards in the front are hard to roll so you would have to pump/pull the guards for them to be scrub free. The brand of tyre also effects Fitment as well, a PSS for example is squarer so a 225 PSs would be equivalent to a 235 in a Kumho ku39 (more rounded side wall). The OP's ride height will certainly also need to be considered, my car is very low but from the pics he supplied I'm sure he's after a similar stance.
Not going to roll,pull or pump and guards on this car. Ride height is questionable i hope the new suspension i got will give me what i want and yes i should of got coilovers but anyway will see how it looks once i get time to install it all.

Will be hard to fit. 225 would be your only hope of fitting those on the rear.
The rims would look clean too on a E90 i haven't seen these rims be played much which is the main reason im so set on getting them. Yeah his running 225's. Might ask for some good photos of it with out any spaces ect clearly showing how flush they really are. I'll try find some more pictures from him. I could get them in 18X8.5 ET43 square set up
