style 95 wheels

I recently bought a set of style 95s and thinking of putting them on the e60. I just want to know if putting 19s affects the ride, performance, or gas mileage. Will it rub in the back. I'm assuming if I put 245/45/19 rear and 245/30/19 front that I should have no fitment issues nor rubbing. Is that correct?

Thanks

Your rear choice is 7% bigger than an OE size, the front is 4% smaller. If nothing else that would look very odd. 245/35R19 front and 285/30R19 rear are within 0.5% of OE diameter. Not saying they'll fit without rubbing nor be the right width to suit the rim width, but the OD would be right.
