M3 E46 Competition wheels from BMW Dealership

I have a 2004 BMW m3 E46. Everything is stock including the 19" style rims.

I am planning on purchasing the Competition wheels from the Dealership.

Should i stick with the factory tires that are fitted with the 19" oem rims or can i get different size tire for the competition wheels?

You can go as high as 245 in the front and 275 in the back.

You can stick with the factory tires or you can buy those sizes if you want.

Or is that the same size the factory tires come in?

Yep...245 front and 275 rear. Usually you can go one size higher than stock fitments.

I have the stock 19" rims with 245's front and 275's rear. I bought BFGoodrich g-Force T/A KDW 2 to go along with them after the stockers went capoot. Great price, great look and great handling. Got them at the tire rack as always. Hope i helped.
