Any suggestions for ALL SEASON staggered tires for 640i GT?

My 2019 640i GT xDrive with luxury package came with summer tires. Iím not able to find 19Ē staggered ALL SEASON, run flat, touring tires for my car. Summer tires seem to be the only ones available in the US. Front tires are 245-45-19, rear are 275-40-19 (which are the problem). The closest Iíve been able to find are the Michelin MXMís. However, the rear tires do not have the XL designation as rec. by BMW. Does anyone have any suggestions? Iím considering either replacing the rear wheels so they match the front ones or replacing all the wheels with 19Ē take offs from late model 5 or 7 series (G series) cars.

I did the latter. Mine came with 20" wheels (245/40R20 Front and 275/35 R20 Rear) with summer performance tires. Instead of different tires, I just bought a set of 19" wheels for the winter, and I'm running 245/40R19's on all four corners. I found the wheels on Facebook from someone who bought a new 7-series and wanted 20" wheels year round. They have Pirelli Cinturato P7's with no more than 500 miles on them. I expect several winters from them.

Thank you. I just purchased 19Ē M-sport series takeoffs from a late model 7 series with the same Pirelliís.

In case anyone else is looking for winter wheels, here is a link on Facebook for a set, identical to the one's I bought:

I don't think you will be disappointed.
My car came with 20"s all around with summer tires but I am a very low mileage driver and hate buying proper winter tires for only a few km. Before delivery pick-up, I had the dealer swap out the set of 20"s for a set of 19"s with all-seasons.
Better suits my needs and I drove both GTs before doing the swap and from my perspective couldn't tell the difference in handling but the 19"s seemed slightly softer. Both had Pirellis.
Perfect.

I love the car and the 19"s I ended up with.
BTW, the rims have different numbers but are the same colour; 20" 648 bicolour came off; 19" 647 bicolour went on.
Personally, I can't tell the difference visually.
