Need some advice on wheel+tire fitment.

Hello friends,
I have a 2009 128i with stock suspension. I was looking at buying some new rims, specifically the Enkei EKM3's.
Rim Specs:
18x8
Offset: +42mm
Backspacing: 6.06"+
The recommended tire size on these boys are 215/40/18

I just want to be sure that there will be no problems with fitment. Also, since I have 225 in the rear I'm a little skeptical about putting smaller tires on the back. This is my daily and I'm not looking for any problems big or small, just trying to change the appearance .

Also I am not going to be on runflat tires so any suggestions on which tires to get would be appreciated (I live in Florida so no snow for me).

225 will fit fine on the wheels. Not sure if it will rub tho.
