VMR v710FF Fronts (19x9.5 et22) Rear (19x10.5 et25)

So I am getting mixed feedback on my situation. I currently have on order to be shipped, VMR v710FF (19x9.5 e22 fronts) (19x10.5 e25 rears) wrapped in MSS 265/30/19 and 295/30/19 respectively. I am currently lowered on OEM220M spec wheels/tires with KWV3 about .25 inch lower than ZHP. My questions is for my rears, should I just go 285/30/19 (Hankook v12) in the rears to be safe, I don't want to rub. Only change would be swap the brand tires all around as well. Thoughts?

The rear will be fine if you're just a 1/4" lower than comp pack height. You may have to trim some of the fender liner and bumper tab but that's easy and not a big deal. If you switch to V12s the 295 will fit with no issues since they run very narrow compared to most other tires. No need to go down to a 285 in my opinion.

Thanks! from what I read, Hankook does not make a 295/30 either. I appreciate your feedback!
