Bridgestone RE-11 run wide or narrow?

I have a set of TE37 SL's with 19 x 10.5 et 22 rears.

I have decided to either install yokohama AD08's or Bridgestone RE11's. The RE11's are available in 305/30/19 and I don't know if I will be able to sneak them on the rear wheels. I know the AD08's in 295/30/19 will rub slightly but I am not aware of anyone who is running the RE11's in 305's.

I ran 305's on my previous set of wheels without any problems but I think the tires (pirelli p-zero nero's) ran a little narrow. If the RE11's run narrow I think I could pull it off...

I got RE-11s for my stock 18s in the stock size and they were definitely wider than the PS2s that came off. Most Bridgestones run wider than other tire brands.

The 305/30R19 Bridgestones are a nominal 12.2" wide. 12.2 inches x 25.4mm/inch = 309.88mm. So they run slightly wide for their size in this case, plus a pretty square shoulder will make them seem wider than their nominal measurement.

I expect you could make it work, but be prepared to make modifications, possibly extensive. I would not expect it to be an easy bolt-on with no rubbing.

Thanks Ben; it was good talking to you as well.
