Best wheels for Xdrive

Since the M3 is in the shop getting the full treatment and a new Arkym front bumper (thank you Bobby at Pyspeed) I am in the mood to mod the wife's car too.

It has Xdrive so no staggered setup.

I saw an RS4 a couple of months back with 275 tires all around and 9.5 width wheels and it looked fantastic.

I know that my 335xi is not as wide, but is there something similar I can get done to my car?

Well, I know you can fit Michelin PSS's on the rear in 265/35 18's on VMR's (but I can't for the life of me remember which style I bought her!)

Garage List
As long as you keep the diameter of the front and rear wheels the same (or within 1-2%) you can basically throw whatever you want on them. I'm running 225/40/18 fronts and 255/35/18 rear.

Can you send me some pics?

Also an OTD price with TPMS and tires....Probably something all-season(she doesn't exactly turn and burn when she drives....sorry babe, but it's true and even you have to admit that you fit the cliche of "Asian Female Drivers").
