19" Breyton Tyre Size Question

Hi Everyone,

Have been searching all day on here and pretty sure this will be OK but just want to check with people out there....

I currently have an E93 M3 with 19" Breyton GTS running 235/35-19 on the front with 15mm spacers and 265/30-19 on the rear with 15mm spacers. These wheels were originally fitted to my 335i but without the spacers. I don't like the look of the lower profile wall (and I guess the rolling diameter is less too) so i'm planning on changing the tyres in the near future to either 245/35-19 or 255/35-19 on the front and 275/35-19 on the rear. Stock EDC suspension BTW and not planning to lower. I believe the GTS rims are 8.5"f and 9.5"r rather than the M3 OEM 9"f and 10"r. Am I correct, any thoughts, please dive in?!?

Cheers,
Darren

Just a quick update, I finally changed them and am now running 245/35-19 front and 275/35-19 rear Falken FK452 with no rubbing or clearance issues on the Breytons with the same 15mm spacers. The slightly thicker tyre profile looks much better with less chance of curbing the rims and they seem to fill the arches much better too and just look right. Very glad I went with this choice!
