Wheel upgrade qestion

I have a 11' E90 Xdrive with 17" (225/45/17x8" ET34) wheel square setup. I am thinking about to upgrade it to either 18" or 19" wheel. I would like to find out what wheel width and offset options are best suited for the E90 if I want to keep it square setup.

If you want to stay square I wouldn't go wider than a 235 or 245 tire. Although I think someone is running 265's up front. There are a lot of posts on this forum regarding offsets and wheel width. It partly depends on the asthetics you're looking for.

I'm running 245/40/17 on OEM 188 style wheels. So far so good. Now bring on the snow and lets see how these DWSs handle in the snow?!?
