I assume trying 305/30/19 rears I will be rubbing on the 19x11 et25 wheels, unless I increase my negative camber.
You will rub with those specifications, even if you increase camber.

You can run the 265-35-19, however cosmetically the 275-30-19 looks far better, gives more clearance from rubbing and it matches the overall diameter better. Its important to try and match the overall wheel/tire diameter difference between front and rear and keep close to stock if possible, otherwise it will trigger your DSC more often and make it more sensitive when you don't want it to be.

Is your car lowered by any chance?
