255?????? that seems really wide??? really really wide. did you offset them or are the fronts the same? if you raise the rear up with spacers, check the application of your shocks because it is very likely they will max out when the car bounces and break them because the travle is too long for the shock.
your best bet is to get a thinner tire. but if you want to drive like a muscle car then you need to roll the fenders even more. use a heat gun to heat up the paint a bit so it wont crack so bad, but dont burn it.
225 40/17 is a good size.
btw/ you do realise the more you offset your tires the more you will destroy the handling and turning of your car. offset tires are not a great idea on bimmers...
raising it up is also not another great idea. bite the bullet and do it right. get new tires. it will save you alot in the future.
