Seeking suggestions for 19" 8"J Front and 8.5"J Rear wheels

My car came with a 225/40 19 8J RFT straight set up and want to switch to Michelin PS4S staggered setup with OEM specifications for tires and rims i.e.

225/40 19 8J Front
255/35 19 8.5J Rear

Plenty of choice (mesh, antlers, VMR 801, etc.) in the 8.5" Front and 9.5" Rear set up by nothing noteworthy in the OEM spec except for the classic 5/7 spoke split design (think Enkei Raijin, vmr v710, BBS CI etc.)

Any suggestions would be appreciated...

Titan 7. I think it's the best price performance ratio on wheels right now. Fully forged and lightweight.

Update: Just realized that G20 fitment isn't available on their site yet. Also will probably be a slightly more aggressive than stock.

You can run OEM tires on 8.5 front and 9.5 rear. It's only a tiny stretch and looks fine

Get a wheel that has fitment a for the model. Bbs is obviously the best choice. VMR is fine but boring imo and enkei doesn't belong on a bmw imo lol.

I have a lot of opinions haha
