New wheels - Fitment question e90 pre-lci

pulling the trigger on some new wheels here is the fitment

2008 e90 335i with factory sport package

19" Fitment:

Fronts: 19x9 5x120 ET35
Rears: 19x10 5x120 ET38

im going with michelin PSS with that being said i heard these tires are wider then most. I want an aggressive fitment but also have all the traction in the world.

I do plan on lowering the car eventually. What is the best tire size i can run with this offset and not have issues.

All knowledge is appreciated and pictures would be the best

fronts, i wouldn't go more than 245. even that will rub once you're lowered.

rears, u can probably go 285 if u want to roll the fenders some. 265 will sit fine on a 10j wheel.

plug some differnet tire sizes into the calculator and try and get a height similar to stock if u want your speedo to be accurate.

275 will be ok in the rear with the right offset. 245 in the front can start rubbing some depending on how low u go. the spot where the front bumper meets the front fender is a problem.
