Winter set up question

Hey guys, I'm struggling for a response over at the 'Fest.

I have a question before I buy winter tires. Do you think I can run 4 235/35R - 19 on the oem 351 wheels for the 650xi coupe?

I see the standard 19s are 245/40R-19. I want to make sure these other ones (235/35) can hold the weight of this beast?

It's NOT the weight you should be concerned. It's the speedo & overall diameter difference

Speedo will be off by 3mph faster on the proposed setup.

I provided a more detailed answer over on the 'Fest. The previous poster is correct. You have to watch the diameter.
