Question about weheel & tire sizing for my 2012 528

Thinking of going with F10 M5 replicas on my new 528.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/190618057846...84.m1423.l2649

Wheel sizes are 19 x 8.5 (front) & 19 x 9.5 (rear).

The E60 M5 had the same size wheels, and went with 255/40 up front and 285/35 in the rear. Would that tire combination work on my 528?

Or should I size it down and go 245/35 front and 275/30 rear?

Thanks!

Go the same as 19s on other F10s, 245/40/19s up front, 275/35/19s in back. The replica wheels look ok, but they may not be the strongest. Fitment will be fine though.

I'd go with 245/40 and 275/35 on those wheels.
