Tire size help

I just purchased a set of m359s 19x9 et 35 and 19x10 et 38 for my e92 335i. Im having trouble deciding what size tires to use. I know 235/30 and 265/30 are good sizes but i dont want the tires to have the stretched looked. i was also considering 275/30 but dont want it to rub and dont plan on rolling fenders. I was thinking of using Michelin Pss which run wide. Also i am not lowered will probably lower 1.5" in the future. Thanks the help.

I hate to say it but I think your 19x10 rears are too wide anyways with the et 38 you got them in, thats way to aggressive. I run 235/40/18 on a 18x8.5 et35 with 15 mm bms spacers and my tires almost sit nearly flush with the quarter on my 335xi, so with my rim and spacer that would be the same as a et20. They may work but you might be limited to how low you go in the rear with out rolling in the back. Did you search or maybe someone with a identical set up chimes in. HTH
