Correct tire size for M3?

I have been checking out the tire sizes for M3 on the wheels/tires sub forum.

I am quite confused about the profiles people say on their M3s.

Currently I got a set of HRE P44SC 19''

19 x 9.5 ET22
19 x 10.5 ET22

I am thinking of putting 255/35/19, 275/30/19 or 265/30/19, 285/30/19, very unsure about the profile please help!

Thanks in advance.

Why are you curious about M3 sizes. Are these going on your 335?
Those are pretty aggressive wheels imo. Either tire setup should work fine. Would definitely go for the 265/285 setup though.

I don't want to put spacers on the M3 so the offset is quite aggressive and tire size/brands must be seriously considered.

who say I can't drive both 335 and M3? lol

I never said you cant have both. Just didnt know. Been trying to follow your 335 and have never seen mention of an M3. For an M3, def go 265/285. Even higher if you want to be more aggressive personally. I dont know your setup though.
