I want as much wheel protection as possible and decent ride comfort, thanks!
You should definetly go with the 275/35/19's.

That is nearly the perfect sizing for a 10" wide rear wheel. Very nice sidewall to minimize noise harshness and vibration, a very good section width to improve dry and wet weather traction, and a rolling diamter that is very close to stock.

The 275/35/19 rear tire size should not cause you any rubbing issues on a stock ride height car, or even one that is dropped on lowering springs like Eibachs.

The other sizes you mentioned all have potential downsides that I would steer clear of...

BTW: You have made a very good decision to buy the Vredestein Sessantas. This is an excellent tire product that I personally recommend to everyone I meet. The performance vs. price is outstanding.

I can't ever see myself going back to paying PS2 money again (for my high performance tires), as long as the Vredestein Sessantas are around.
The best is yet to come...
