Getting new wheels. What tire size?

Those with 18" wheels, what is an optimum width and height for new tires?

I do not want too wide..maybe 265 rear and 235 up front..but what height or series rather is the general rule?

Mein Auto: 07 X3 6MT is a great calculator for figuring that stuff out.

I think it was 235/40 in the front and 265/35 in the rear for appx 2.4% difference but close enough.
