Question E90 335i sport package - new wheel/tire questions

I have E90 335i with sport package (162 wheels). I really want to get csl type wheel in dark guntemal or matte black. Wife approves it for my bday, there is a catch, i cannot lower the suspension, because they already complaining that my car is too bumpy, oh well.

I just bought new michelin tires last june pilot sport all season non-rft, it only has 8k miles.

I am debating if i should get 18" or 19". Please note that i am not planning lower the car, i will keep the eom sport suspension setup.

If i get 18, it will only cost me around 1k because i will only buy wheels and i can use the existing tires correct? If the new wheel size is 18x8.5 and 18x9.5, can i put the wider tires like 235/40/18 and 265/35/18 later when my existing oem size tires are worn/bald?

If i get 19, it will cost me around 2k because i have to buy new tires too and 80% of people in the forum will say drop it, drop it drop it lol. However 19 may look better than 18 even it is on stock sport suspension.

Please help me make decisions. Thanks
