They will give a over 6.2% error on your speedo because they have a different sidewall size than the 19" tires BMW uses

why don't you look at your car and see if you have an extra 20mm of room around your tire (if you have sport, 50mm if you don't have sport (rear))

if you don't have much clearance you won't be able to fit them

Call and talk to someone at Tire Rack. I suspect they will tell you not to use that size tire. You will need a lower profile, smaller outside rolling diameter tire.

I called tirerack and it seems like the 245, 275 tires will not fit without some body mods (for both SP and non-SP e90s).

I am dying to buy the 19" bbs ck's but I can't find any run flats to wraps them
