You need to list offsets and rim widths to determine tire sizes.

I'd go 275/30-19 in the rear.
I have a pre-LCI with those widths and I'm running 235 up front and 275 in the back.

Most likely 235/35/19 and 265/30/19, however you should find out the offsets to be sure that that sizing will work without a problem.

Rear sizing will work juts fine with a 265/30/19 tire. Front sizing is more aggressive than we recommend though.

Do you guys think I should transfer the tpms from my original wheels or should I just get new ones?

And should I sell my OEM ones or no? prolly keep them right due to the fact that this m6 style are reps, right

I would go down a size in the front since you have an e92 and plastic fenders. 225/35/19 and 265/30/19.

You might want to use a spacer in the rear or get lower offsets to match the front. If you do that you'll need to roll the rear fenders.

So, I'm pretty new at this as I never replaced anything on any of my cars before so, let's say If I go with 235 in the front there won't be necessary to roll the fenders? and use a spacer in the rear with the 265s right?

If is not too much to ask, could you tell me exactly what would you do and what spacers to buy if I need any?

Can I transfer the original tpms in my current tires or should I buy new ones for the new wheels/tires?

I would use 225/35/19 and 265/30/19. Get the wheels on first then decide if you want to roll the rear fenders and add a spacer.

What do you mean by "you'll need to roll the rear fenders"?

If I use a spacer I have to roll the fender or no? cause I want to use a spacer

I am thinking about same but with f10 m5 wheels

It's 19x8.5 and 19x9.5 35 offset all around

I am going with 235-35-19 and 265-30-19

Also thinking having my tpms removed and replaced in new wheels

The tire guy said sometimes the tpms break during transfer...
