255/30/19 for fronts and 275/30/19 for Rears

Hi all,
I'm looking at tyres for my e90 M3 with M220 wheels. And would it be reasonable to try a 255/30/19 front and 275/30/19 rear?

Two tyres caught my eye in this review:

The Falken FK510 and the Vredestein Vorti. From the review I'd prefer the Vorti
- steeering feel over comfort.

However the only Vredesteins local to me, at a reasonable price is the above combo. Would it work? Would a 30 profile be too harsh? (The Falkens are plentiful and easy to source in OEM sizes.)

30 side profile will ride like s##t you can easily fit 255/35 and 275/35's on stock wheels just make sure the front tyre pressure is below 35psi or else it will rub the liner

I am running the Falken FK510 on my m3 in 275/30/19 square, and i love how it rides. The tires are surprisingly good for the price point, canyon runs have been drama free.

Drama free canyon runs sounds great to me.

I've got the 8.5 fronts and 9.5 rears. I'll keep to a staggered setup for now. The Falkens do look like a good option. I think the irony is that the Vredesteins have a stiffer sidewall so would be the harsher one at a 30 profile. Whereas if I get the Falkens they'd be at the 35 profile.

On the one hand I think I'm spinning gears over very little. Side by side tests are often splitting hairs. Once you get any one of those good tyres home, they'll be fine. On the other hand, I once got some tyres for a Mercedes CLK I used to have that made the steering feel noticeably go from poor to even worse.
