I am picking up a new M5 soon and really want to go with the Titan-7 T-S5 Forged wheels. I'm hoping I can run:

19" 9.5 +22 front & 19" 10.5 +25 rear.

I want to go on HR lowering springs but am not sure if I'll encounter rubbing. What tire size should I go for, and what size spacers (if any) should I run? I still want to be able to drive this car balls out without having to worry about handling or acceleration. Thank you.

That's a nice and light wheel!

As for tires, best for what? Grip for the street? Grip for the track? Strip? Cold?

For the street, I'm running DINAN LTW 19x9 ET18, 19x10 ET25, Yoko AD08R 275/35/19 and 305/30/19, Macht Schnell 15mm spacers (front). -2.0/-2.5 F/R camber on a fully adjustable coilovers from Motion Control Suspension w/Eibach springs. Not the best tire for cold or rain, but a great track tire you can street.

Michelin PS4S is a great all-rounder on this platform. They can handle a few track days, some cold and rain. I'll likely go back to a PS4S, but they seem perpetually back ordered in my sizes.

For the track between my other cars, I run the Yoko AD08R, Nitto NT01, Toyo RR and R888R, Hankook RS-4. I want to run the Nankang CR-1 or Hankook RS4, which is offered in my 19" e60 sizes. I'm tempted to pick up a set for my spare wheels. I use the RS4 on my other cars for 7 hour and 8 hour endurance races, for lap after lap after lap. One set will last for 15 hours over the weekend.

The only way you will know for sure is to mount them and see if they rub. 275s and 305s fit on my setup, but your mileage may vary.

Do you happen to have a photo of your setup? I would love to see how it looks!
