VS-XX 19x11 tire size recommendation

I post asking about this before but doesn't seem to find a reply.

2013 E92 Coupe

Work VS-XX step lip
19x9.5 +28 Front R-Disk
19x11 +26 Rear A-Disk
H&R Springs (Not yet install)

I need tire size without rubbing issue.

I think for the front, i have 255/35/19 is a safe size but the rear i don't know what is the best size for 19x11. Would 285/35 or 295/35 be an issue?

Please help. I try to find ppl with this size but can't seem to find what I was looking for. Thanx

Im running those wheel diameter and widths. Same fronts rears 275/35. Not sure what drop the h&r gives but im lowered about 1.4" rears (1/2" gap) and 1" front (1" gap). Only rubs with rears on dips at 45+ mph. No rubbing on full lock with the fronts. Front tires are pzeros and rears rs-rr. Also my meisters are I have o-discs. I think the r and a discs have less backspaces. Check your strut clearance now and compare it with your vsxx. Good luck

you should be able to run 295/30 in the rear. I was rubbing but on PS4S which are known to be more square and my offset on the same wheels was +21 which wasn't optimal for that size tires

I think you'd be fine with 295/30 on Hankook V12 or Bridgestone pole position S04

For the front you can do 255/35, 265/30 or 275/30. My offset is +18 in the front and I run 265/30, no rub and I'm lower than H&R springs. Rears should be fine with either 285/35 or 295/30.

I recommend 275/30 and 295/30.

Thanks all. After reading all your comments, i think i like to go with 35 all the way around. I can use as much meat as possible with potholes here. So 255/35 front and 285/35 rear.

295/30/19

I wouldn't go with a 35 profile tire. It's too tall, 0.8" larger diameter than stock size. Stock tires already look like a balloon as is.

So you don't think 285/35 will fit without rubbing? You mention 295/30. Is that what you all recommending?

I switched to 295/30/19 from 285/35/19 and am amazed at how much more planted/stable the car feels now during "spirited" driving. Personally, I also prefer the look of the 30 sidewall which is the same as the sidewall height on my front tires (255/35/19). The 285/35 never bottomed out whereas the 295/30 has a couple times due to the wider tread width but only when going at speed over big dips in the road or railway crossings - no damage done however.
