Mein Auto: e60 550i sport
Do you know if a larger than stock tire will fit the 550i sport?

Wanted to hear from some of the experienced members here if I have any options for a larger-than-stock tire size with the wheels I just picked up?

I have an 08 550i sport and am running the staggered stock sport wheels and tires;
Fronts: 8.5x19 wheels and 245x35R19 tires
Rears: 9.5x19 wheel and 275x30R19 tires
Not certain of the OEM stock sport wheel offsets?

I just picked up some BC Forged wheels with the following specs:
Fronts: 9x19, +15 offset
Rears: 10x19, +25 offset

Now, my question is: Must I get the same exact size tires or can I possibly fit a larger tire without any rubbing to give it a slightly more aggressive look like an M5?

Please let me know your experience, advise, suggestions and/or opinions. Thanks!!
