New rim/tire setup questions

Sup guys, I ordered a set of Vertini Wheels from the forums and was just curious about the tire size that I am thinking about settling with.. heres the rims first.
http://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/sho....php?t=1394457

So right now I have 18" wheels, 225/45/18 pics are attached. I was going to go with 245/40/19 front tires and 275/35/19 for the rear tires on the new set of rims I got. This is my DD and I live in Jersey where the roads SUCK, so I want tires that are going to be comfortable on the road but obviously look and perform good.

Just wanted to hear opinions on brands of tire to look into, and if the specs of the tires are going to work with my car. I based my tire sizes on https://www.wheel-size.com/size/bmw/...trim-435i-usdm so hoping I'm on the right track. I also hear Run-flats are no bueno and I am better off getting non run flats... thanks guys in advance!

You are choosing wider tires that may or may not fit without rubbing on something, and lower profile tires that don't do well if you hit a pothole at speed--not only are the tires easily ruined, but the rims can be bent as well. Why not stick with the 45 profile tires?

If you want to daily this car, I'd suggest maintaining a same size tires for better ride comfort. Also, prefer AS tires because they have meaty sidewall for those pothole filled roads...

So on tire rack I cannot find any sets that are 45 in front and 40 in back to keep the specs close to stock tire sizes. next best thing I can find for staggered tires on tire rack is 40 in front and 35 in back. The only way I can achieve those profile thicknesses (45 & 40) is if I go with the 245 & 275 tire widths. Struggling to figure out where to compromise. To make matters worse I need to keep these under 200/wheel...

If I do not lower my car, would you guys happen to know how likely I am to get wheel rub and how problematic that would end up being?
