Lolololo he asked what tire size and you respond with "you are good, no worries cuz I have bigger rims"? You can have bigger tires on smaller rims but whatever. Like the previous guy said, 235/265 would be good.

Read OP. these are for 18x8.5/18x9.5. NOT 19". The tire sizes would be 235/40-18 front and 265/35-18 rear.

it is a larger sidewall
the second number, 35 and 30, is the percentage of the width, and because the tires are considerably wider than stock, the sidewall height should be the same.

Will these tires be low profile? because a friend of mine had 19" on his 5 series and hit a pot hole here in chi and cracked both of his rims, these were oem factory bmw rims that he got from the dealer ship

For your E92 on 18x8.5 +40, 18x9.5 +33, I recommend running 235/40/18, 265/35/18. Rub-free fitment

Nope I run a 235/40 on a 18x8.5 +35 and I'm lowered a good bit without rubbing even when I had the 10mm spacer up front.

Really, again said 19 looks sexy, but Chicago city is bad for potholes, but burbs is fine. For West point you should be good yourself. I wouldn't waste time on 18 in the burbs, and lay off the caps
