You have at least two options for the front tire:
235/40-19 (1% taller than OEM)
245/35-19 (1% shorter than OEM)

Since the M403 wheels are 8" wide front and 8.5" rear a difference of 13mm I would have choosen 245/35-19 for the front.
F: 245/35-19, section width 248mm
R: 255/35-19, section width 260mm

The tire widht differs by 12 mm which will make the tires fit similar on the front and rear wheel!

Is it because you dont find them in ur shop, coz from what I can see they exist:

http://www.tirerack.com/tires/TireSe...=57430&tab=All

Btw, any reason why you want to change them? I have the exact same S001 tyres in the same dimensions etc... and i find them excellent! So why the change? Just out of curiosity...

any1 replaced factory RFT Bridgestone Potenza S0001 with their 19's
with new decent summer performance tires and what have you felt after replacing?

i can't feel the edge of slipping with my car , sometimes i lose control without meaning to
not sure if i should replace the tires soon or do some more miles on them.

That is one of the first things I changed on my 135i too. The bridgestones are great but no other street tire hooks up like the PSS. If your planning on tuning and adding bolt ons then they are a must.

If you decide to change them out just pm me and I would be happy to work you up a fast quote.

toyo is cheaper than the nittos but not sure which are better in performance or even comfort as a DD & spirited driving .. anyone experienced in these tires?
