M5 Style #166 Wheels on 2008 535i Sport

So, I've googled and found several threads, none with a true definitive answer for what it takes to install the OEM style 166 rims (19") on a 535i w/Sport Package (18").

I found a great deal on a clean set of 166s, ($1200) but want to make sure I'm not going to have a hard time installing them without rubbing the well.

I'm looking for exactly what tire sizes I'll need, especially aspect ratio, and if spacers were needed due to offset.
Would love to hear from 535i owner who've done this.

You should not have any problems, I have them on my 2004 545i with 12mm H&R Spacers in the back with no issues. They look beautiful!

12mm spacers on both front and rear? Also, do you just use the M5 OEM tire specs?

Photos?

You cannot use OEM M5 tire specs

You will have to use
245/35/19 in the front
275/30/19 on the rear (You can also use 285/30/19) but I would recommend 275/30/19 if your planning on installing spacers.
