Search is your friend... check out a link that @Col posted in this thread:
How do I select a new set of wheels for a 55?

I haven't used it as I still have stock wheels, but it might be useful for you!

Yes that will work I think. I have the same rim sizes and tyre sizes. Only differences are my fronts are et30, you could acheive this with a 5mm spacer, might also help with caliper clearance if you need it. My fronts don't rub even on full lock, not sure if et35 and 235 tyres would? Again though 5mm spacer will get you out of jail.

My rears are et40 but I believe you could get away with et30.

Wheels look good, AMG replicas?

Be careful, I am in the same boat looking for better looking wheels and had purchased the wheels bellow to later be told they would rub the brake calipers...

Wheels

Niche - Targa 19" x 9.5"+35 Offset 5x112 Bolt Pattern and 66.6 mm Hub

Tires

You should enter your car for the Ride of the Month completion. The car and wheels look great.

I got this

After so much research for the right fit, I finally got some style of wheels that made me happy.....the Big Brembo front brake calipers makes a bit difficult to find a wheel that looks good and fits
