Tyre Question for my 19s

I have just got a set of breyton inspirations for my 328ci.

The tyres i have ordered (stupidlly without checkecking with you guys!) are 235/40/19 (F) and 245/40/19 (R) the car has mtech suspension, should these be ok or have i been an idiot?

Both sizes are a bit tall and you might incur rubbing issues. I'm referring to the 40 aspect ratio.

235/35 and 245/35 would have been the better choices.

The fronts and rears will be about 1" larger OD with your sidewall.
