Help with rims!!

Hello all I am thinking about purchasing a set of rims for my 2008 335xi with the sports package.
The specs are:
Front-235/35zr19
Back-265/30zr19
They are staggered
idk if i needed to put the zr but that is what was on the tire. If somebody can tell me if the specs would work id appreciate it. Also i may lower it with h&r springs (1.2 inch drop back, 1.3 inch drop front) so if they would fit with stock spring, would the lower be to much.

Thank you

My summer wheels are exactly your size and I have Bilstein all around on H&R Sport Springs no problems so far...5k until I had to put my winter/stock setup for the awesome NY weather

Ok so I didn`t know the deal with staggered or not staggered. And could I run spacers if I wanted to?

The tire size combination is good for xi. Entirely depends on the wheel offset as to whether the set up will rub or not

Compare height of the tire for front vs. back. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I heard you shouldn't surpass a 5% margin for all wheel drive vehicles.

You have..
Front-235/35zr19 = 82.25MM
Back-265/30zr19 = 79.5MM

(82.25-79.5)/82.25 = 3.3% = OK!

When I talked to Gary at Tirerack the other day he suggested that I go 235/35/19 & 275/30/19 on my 2011 335i xDrive as it presents a closer tolerance front to back.

I will be ordering my new tires in these sizes after I pick up my 19" wheels this weekend.
