Another wheel set-up question

I have searched a little and was previously tossing around the idea of bbs rims and AG's back and forth for a little.... I just pulled the trigger on Avante garde 310's 19x8.5 +35 and 19x9.5 +33.... these will be my third set of wheels (currently my summer set-up was 193m's with michellin pilot super sports and winter was Moda rims 18x8 (square) with winter tires) I just wanted something more aggressive and to switch things up once in awhile, I won't be lowering my e92 xdrive anytime soon. The car has m-sport package which might make a difference.

What would be the easiest/best set-up for tires, I don't want to roll my fenders, don't want to worry about rubbing as the roads aren't too good by me, and MOST OF ALL I don't want to worry about messing up the xdrive by having too much of a rolling difference...... Rims are 19's and by searching I'm contemplating

235x35 for front and 265x30 for rear (seems to be the most popular)
or
245x35 for front and 275x30 for rear
or
235x40 for front and 265x35 for rear


I apologize for the repetitive thread but didn't want to thread jack another.
If anyone has a link to a calculator that I can input my front/rear setup and have it tell me the % it would be helpful.

I went for option a 235 front and 275 rear on my e90. No issues but you have a coupe.
