VMR V710 Fitment and 189 Winter Setup

Hi all, I'm about to pull the trigger on a new summer set for my Pre-LCI E92 335i.

I'm looking at VMR V710s in the following sizes:

Front: 19x8.5, et 35
Rear: 19x9.5, et 33

For tires, I am going to go with Michelin Pilot Super Sports. What is the recommended tire size I should go with?

Also, I'd love to be able to reuse my stock 189s as winter wheels. If I wanted to get Bridgestone Blizzak LM-60s, what size would I go with to fit the 189s? Thanks in advance for the help!

235/35/19 and 265/30/19 is what we'd recommend for the V710s. You'll be a very happy person with that setup!

Thanks for the replies and help.

Can someone else confirm that 235/40/18 will fit well on my 189s as a winter setup? Gotta be 100% sure before I drop $3k on wheels and tires..

235/40/18 will fit just fine on your wheels.

Looks like tirerack doesn't have 235/40/18 for the Blizzack LM-60.

Is running a staggered winter setup recommended? I could get 225/40 fronts and 245/40 rears. Or would 225s all around be better? 225 seems a little narrow for the 8.5" rear wheel. Thanks for the help guys.

A 225/40/18 front and rear should be fine as well.

Recommended specs for that tire size specify the wheel width should be 7.5" to 9" wide.
