Depends, what are the offsets? Generally i would say 235/35/19 and 265/30/19 or 275/30/19, but if the offsets are low you might need to pick smaller size.

Then you are fine with 235/35/19 front and 265/30/19 or 275/30/19

Here is some talk about tyre size for those size wheels.

Also depends what your objective is. If you are looking for improved handling then you want to be closer to a square set up. If you are looking for the aggressive look then more rubber on the back seems to be popular.

How high is you stock suspension? Do you have sport suspension?

Generally bigger wheels make the car look higher and the wheel gap bigger if it isn't lowered.

No it will not look strange. Its not that bad, because you have sport suspension. If the car isn't lowered at all then it would look funny.
This is with sport suspension.

This would be my car, actually just sold it last week. The wheels have the same specs and offsets as yours. No spacers! Tires were 235/35/19 & 275/30/19.
Here's a link to my selling thread with much newer pictures--> http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=771685

Back then I was running Nitto Invo tires, about a month ago replaced the Invos with Vrederstein Ultrac Sesanta tires. I highly recommend these tires, million times better than the Nittos!!!

wow looks great! i thought that it would be too high off the ground and it would look strange. nice to see that the sport suspension is low enough to make it look good without scraping everywhere. how was the ride with those size tires and how was the handling? would love to hear back from you.
