Staggered configuration on the 351M 19" rims

When my inaugural set of Goodyears wears out and I have to change tires, I am considering the change to a staggered setup by keeping the current 245/40 R19 size in the front and changing to 275/35 R19 in the back.
I know that this is technically viable as I have seen in posts by fellow American members, but are the 275/35 R19 officially approved in Europe? I want to do this by the book…

Any other thoughts about this change? Is it worth doing on a 535d or are the 245 tires more than enough in the back?

If you gonna change to 275/35/19, you'll need to change to 19x9 rear wheels too.

I thought my stock 351Ms were 8.5J and therefore the 275 mm tires would fit. Are they not?

F10 with 275 rears has 19x9 in the rear, not 19x8.5 that has 245 tires on the F11.

Thanks for clearing that up, remmib.
