Winter tire fitment help?

I have these winter tires and need to know if/what wheels I can get with them to clear my BBK? Any help would be much appreciated!

Pirelli Sottozero 295/30/19 & 235/35/19



EDIT & UPDATE 11/28/13: I now have OEM ZCP 19s and OEM brakes. I know these tires are a bit wide in the rear but would they work? Please see my last post.

Which Brembo brake kit do you have; i.e., F/R rotor diameters, and # of pistons in F/R calipers?

Which BBK? You'll want to narrow down your options some.

Judging by "brembo big brake kit" in your sig, I'd say you're safe with either OEM 220M or ZCP since we've successfully installed them on multiple kits without issues.

Thanks everyone - I'll have to double check the exact kit as I purchased the car with it on.

Sal - Very much appreciated. I was in your shop last week getting my Gintani side skirts put on and checking out those SICK headlights! I'll be seeing ya soon to get my Gintani rear fins put on to match the skirts. Amazing shop!

BTW I don't think these would fit but figure I'd get some expertise before selling them:

From my previous 2006 BMW M5:
Dunlop Snow Sport M3 245/45/18 & Sport Edition 5 Spoke Wheels From TireRack

45s will rub, correct?

Cleaning out the garage before winter...

UPDATE: I still have these Pirellis lying around:
Pirelli Sottozero 295/30/19 & 235/35/19

I now have ZCP 19" wheels and stock brakes. I know these tires are a bit wider than recommended for snow but I would I have any figment issue? They are just sitting in my garage so I figure I might as well put them to use if possible. Any insight would be much appreciated. I am on PSS now and don't necessarily have to drive my car in snow but will definitely be driving it throughout winter.

295/30R19 will generally work, though occasional rubbing is possible. 235 F 295 R will give more understeer if driving enthusiastically. Both tires will fit the ZCP wheels. Fronts will look a bit stretched, rears will be bulging out more.

While certainly less than perfect, this setup would be better than staying with the PSS through winter.
