tire size recommendations for Advan RS

i just ordered 19" Advan RS wheels for my e92 M3 which is on the way. the wheels are 19x9.0 and 19x10.0 .... now i need tires to go with these wheels... what sizes should i go for? how does 245/35/19 and 275/30/19 sound?

could i go up to a 285 tire in the back without the tire sidewall looking too weird once its mounted on the wheels.

I am getting 19x9 +15 up front and 19x10 +15 out back and plan on running 255/35/19 up front and 285/35/19 out back. Why do you think the sidewall would look weird with the 285? It won't be stretched and should look pretty flat.

this exactly what i dont know... i dont really want to stretch my tire thin so if 255 & 285s are going to give me that unstretched look, i'd rather go with 255 and 285 and ditch the idea of using 245 and 275.... i hope going up a size wont cause rubbing issues though...

That depends on the offset. With my +15 offset the wheel will be 14 mm pushed out. I think the M3 fenders should swallow the wheels still. What offset are you getting? If it is more than +15 then I think you will be just fine.

That's only pushing the wheel out 9 mm. I think you will be fine.
