HRE C20 - BSM 1M - Tight Fit

I have had my eye out for a nice set of polished lip on black wheels for some time. I found a set of HRE C20's over on the E90 forums and decided to buy them. The look is pretty much exactly what I was going for. However, the fitment is tight. Here are the specs on the wheels / tires:

Front
19x8.5 ET 20 / Hankook V12 245/35/19

Rear
19x10.5 ET 20 / Hankook V12 275/35/19

I know the specs on these are a bit dramatic with the 2" difference from front to back. I am not too concerned with the overall performance given I don't drive the car very hard or aggressively.

Here are some photos - my biggest concern is up front. The wheel extends just the slightest bit out past the fender. I am concerned about the tire hitting the fender on compression / bumps. I have H&R Sport Springs which I have not installed. It would complete the look but the fitment would be even tighter. Would the front spring travel be reduced with the Sport springs?
