I believe someone in another thread here on the forums said that they were running a 235/35/19 on their OEM X5 wheels.
You may be able to get away with that 235/40/19 with some fender work and negative camber. The tire brand can help determine if it might work or not as some tires do tend to run a bit larger in size such as the Conti DW's or Michelline Pilot sports.

Thanks for the reply,

The tyres brand is REO 50A Bridgestone Potenza, will I still need arche mods if I get the right tyres?

Thanks

More than likely you will still need to roll your fenders and run negative camber as it is a really aggressive fitment for any E46 non M.
Have you already purchased the wheels? I can actually help you out in getting a perfect set of wheels that will work on your car without any rubbing issues.
I can even get you a set of wheels that will work with those tires you just purchased
