Here is the post I made with some pics and sizing.
Nice looking ride! When i picked up the vehicle, i ended up getting the Msport model - which came w/ staggered 19"s from the factory. I'm running a similar tire size as you... i believe the fronts are 235/40/19 and the rears are 255/35/19. I might be slightly off on the sidewall measure. Nevertheless, I'm glad to see that you're not having any issues with the staggered setup.
The set I currently have on the vehicle has summer tires. This weekend, I plastidipped my winter setup, and will be putting them on the x3 in the next few weeks. Teaser attached
