Tire suggestion for 19" wheels

Hello guys, I recently just picked up a set of BBS LM's and I would like your suggestions/feedback on what size tires to get.
To start off, the offsets are 19x8.5 ET17 19x10 ET25.
Previous owner of the wheels had a set of Hankook Ventus v12's wrapped in 245/35 275/35.
My initial plan was to just replace the rears to 265/30 and leave the 245/35 as it has about 60-70% tread left.
What size tires do you recommend for the rears?
I would also like to note that I have an E90 LCI and lowered on KW V2's.
The front and rear fenders have been rolled as well.

I just replaced my Hankooks with Michelin super sports 235/35 front and 265/30 rear. I went Michelin for a few reasons. They are highly recommended, only summer performance tire with any warranty whatsoever (15k on staggered setup) that I could find and there happened too be a rebate. They cost a bit more than Hankooks but it was with it.

I replaced all four tire with 60% remaining in the front just because it's AWD and with a new set in rear and old set up front the rolling difference would be pretty large, didn't want to mess things up.

If you wanted to stick with the same sizes up front but go to PSS, I have a pair (2) of 245/35-19 PSS with 7-8/32" for sale. PM if you're interested

I have an RWD so it shouldn't be an issue on replacing all four tires. I have camber up in the front and rear so the tires wear out pretty quickly. In my current situation, I don't think PSS are worth it for me. But I will give it a try on my next set of tires.
