The E63/E64 BMW 6 Series builds on BMW's sporty heritage with aggressive lines and an incredible motor to back the design up. Available in coupe and convertible trims with a standard 4.8 liter engine producing 360 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque, the 6-series is a popular choice that exceeds expectations.

Can I run 245/35/19 and 275/30/19 tires?

So I got a flat on my Michelin pilot sport tires near the sidewall that cannot be patched, and in the inspection process at the tire shop they found a small bubble in the sidewall of another tire. Looks like I'll be needing new tires!

I have a new set of tires from my previous car, 245/35/19 for fronts and 275/30/19 for the rears. I know the stock sidewall size is 40 for the fronts and 35 for the rears...

Will it be a big issue if I put the 245/30/19 and 275/30/19's on? I know the speedo will be off a little bit, but I can live with that. These are pretty much brand new tires, so I'd like to use them if possible... I believe the tire size difference is -3.61%, and it isn't recommended to go over 3%

Any advice would be appreciated

Yes you can run them, although it'll be a stiff ride..
