Somebody on the site might already have the combo & you are golden if not take a lot of measurements at the wheel opening to see how much clearance you have.

Just for a point of info the stock 313 19" wheels will take 245X35X19 & 275X30X19 with out rubbing with no spacers.

BTW if you have a warranty & they see wheel spacers you will have trouble from the dealer.
I plan to get the Michellin PSS with the elbrus i08 18 " wheels. if anyone has the same setup please let me know what spacers you used on the rear. Worst case as you said I will get the wheels on first and then measure ...Alternatively if a wider Michelin PSS is available pls let me know what size to order so it will look flush without spacers. I have a 2007 e92/n54 with stock wheels. (I have third party extended warranty from my credit union and will probably have some Indy shop install the wheels - no dealer issues if I have to put spacers)
