New Wheels - Now what tires?

I just got my new wheels in the mail!

[IMG]http://www.**********s.com/images/Products/EuroSport%20Wheels/Eurosport-5371-Wheels-BMW-E93-2.jpg[/IMG]

The wheels are 19x8.0 et 35 front and 19x9.0 et 38 rear.

Which tire setup should I go with (Conti DW's):

1) 235/35/19 front and 265/30/19 rear with a -3 rolling diameter difference
2) 225/40/19 front and 255/35/19 rear with a 0 rolling diameter difference

Ideally the 0 rolling diameter would be better for the transfer case, but would the smaller width tires look stretched on 8" and 9" wheels?

(Yes I know this is a tire topic, but I wanted to post here to get input from the XI/X Drive group!)
