any problems running oem tire size on aftermarket 19's?

I noticed most aftermarket companies sell wheels that are 19x8.5 in the front and 19x9.5 in the rear. i want to keep the tire size the same as the oem 19's. has anyone done this without problems flippin out the x-drive? thanks

The non-M OEMS are 19/8 and 19/9 (or 19/8.5) so using the stocks tires on the 19/8.5 and 19/9.5 rims will result in a stretched look on the wheel with the edge of the wheel exposed.

For other tire sizes for 19's, see http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=265710 or search the forum
