Swap the 245/35-19 from the fronts to the rears, and get some 225/35-19 for the fronts. Something along those lines.

Or, 225/35-19 front, 235/35-19 rear.

If the offsets were meant for an M3 you will definitely need to size down the tires, and the rears you'll probably need to do some fender work.
