Anyone running 275 rears on OEM 19's?

Hi

I currently have Michelin PS2's 265/35/19 on my OEM 19" rears.

Is anyone running 275/35/19 on their OEM 19" rears?

Do they fit ok? Will they rub?

I'm thinking of keeping 245/35/19 on the front. Not sure if I should keep the balance by going for 255's on the front?

Thanks!

i had 275 good year eagle f1s in the back, no issues, no rub.
Significantly less noise. however, less responsive.

275/35/19 will fit just fine.

Why do you feel that it is less responsive?

IMHO, 275/30/R19 will be even better as they will be even more responsive

BTW - will anyone advise to buy Cup+ Tires instead of PS2?
what are the real opinions of using it in both road (dry and wet) and track conditions?

I'd go 285 rear and 255 front for more traction, better turn in while keeping very good balance.

i'd love to do that too
move the rear tire forward and buy 2 new ones for the back in 285
but when i checked on tire rack
the the 265 tire is not recommended for 8.5" rim
starts at 9"
but i wonder if there is a problem mounting it to a 8.5 rim
or is that just a ideal situation

Ideal 18" stock wheel tires I think would be either 265-35 / 285-35 or 245/255-35 & 285-35

Is there any downside of running a 275 tire rather than the stock size?
