Suggested tire size?

Hey all,

I just ordered a set of new Alpina reps from greggearhead.com, and am curious what size tires I should put on these. Not too knowledgeable in the tire department unfortunately. Any suggestions? I'm running factory suspension currently and not really planning to go any lower. The wheel sizes are:

16x7 ET28 4x100 (Front)
16x8 ET28 4x100 (Rear)

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I run a square 245/45-16 setup on my iX and it's sweet. A lot of people don't like the fat tire look but I do. If it were my car I would probably run staggered 215 or 225/45-16 front (very few options) and 245/45-16 on the rear.

We have an entire subforum here specifically for wheel and tire discussion, and a huge 641 page thread talking about different sizes and how they fit.
