Need help with tire sizes on 550xi GT

Can someone help me out, I'm leaning on ordering CEC 22's for my 2011 550xi GT - 22x9 F 22x10.5 R - a bit unsure of what staggered tire set up to run.

Any help will be appreciated.

I'd probably go with 255/30/22 and 295/25/22.

Will I be ok on the width with 295 in the rear? Will 285 be safer?

Now about lowering the GT -
1- Is it ok to lower it?
2- With the adjustable rear susp - what options do I have?

I like the photos online of the hamann GT that is lowered on 22's.

You can fit 295 on the F10, so I assume you can fit that on the F07 too.

Rims on GT 535i

Are you sure you can fit 22x9f and 22x10.5r on that car, I was told only a 22x8.5f and 22x10r let me know I want to put the widest rims that I can put on my 2011 GT535i

CEC recommends 265/30/22 for fronts and 295/25/22 for the rears.

Any thoughts?
