Who wants 40 and 45 aspect ratio tires in 19"s?? They won't be selling many to M3 owners.

To answer your question on who would want the 40 series 19" tires, I looked at one size, 285/40R19.

The following brands all would use that size if running a 19" wheel. Did not include every individual model in cases where more than one model for a given brand was compatible.

Aston Martin
BMW (5 Gran Turismo)
Dodge Challenger (and its siblings on the LX platform)
Mercedes GLK
Nissan GT-R
Porsche Panamera
Ben is right.. Wasn't for the BMW crowd. Think they were really shooting for the Porsche Panamera.
