265/35/19 and 295/30/19 Rubbing Issue?

Ok so read through the rubbing/no rubbing thread but didn't really find a one exactly like the set up I'm looking at 19x9.5 et+22 on 265/35/19 and 19x11 et+25 on 295/30/19 lowered on H&R sport springs w/EDC. Can anybody confirm if I'd have any rubbing issues? TIA!

I have no rubbing issues in my E92 with 265/30/19 and 295/30/19 (yokohama AD08), original ZCP wheel and H&R sport springs.

265/35/19 will most likely rub...not due to width but overall diameter.

If not because of width, I don't see why it would rub if I have factory 19" 220m wheels that are 245/35/19 tires in the front. Are you talking about the inside fender well guard?

*edit* op I meant 265/35/19 not 265/30/19

Running 275/30/19 and 295/30/19 with 19x9.5 et20 with 5mm spacers for et15 and 19x11 et25 without any rubbing except minimal inner fender rubbing on the rear for a long time daily. Very minimal rubbing on big dips on the rear currently. Hasn't caused any issues for year plus on the current setup.

I don't have direct experience with a 295 on 11" et 25 wheels in the rear but it sounds as if others have done it. I have ran 275/30/19's on 9.5 et22 wheels successfully on multiple occasions. You will likely need negative camber in the front to make them fit. I like 275's far more than 265/30's because 265/30's are a shorter sidewall (slightly less compliant), 275's are a better match to 295's in the rear (less stagger), 275's are closest to the OEM 245/35 tire diameter, and less understeer due to the extra width.

265/35 will rub due to the larger overall diameter.

Based on your question it doesn't seem that you understand tire sizing. The profile of a tire is expressed as a ratio or a percentage of the width. The profile of a 245/35 tire is almost equal to that of a a 275/30 tire. 245 x 0.35 = 85.75 & 275 x 0.30 = 82.5. While a 265/35 tire has a taller profile (92.75) and overall diameter which causes the fitment problems.

See Slicers comment ...and yes it will hit the inner fender liner. Although Malek got his 265/35/19s to work on the front with the OEM rear ZCP wheel up front.

I have only seen one guy run a 265/35/19 set up and he said he didn't rub while being lowered, I'll try to find the thread tonight hopefully.

265-35-19 will rub in the front. i had 265-30 and it was really close and that was at stock ride height.

No I get that 265/35/19 are taller. I guess I should just be asking ideally what should I run up front to avoid any rubbing issues? I just figured I could use my factory tires since I had them and they were virtually new. I considered using the 245/35/19 but I didn't want to stretch them onto 19x9.5.

Another confirmation that 265/35/19 WILL rub! I had this setup for a couple days, and traded in for 265/30/19. It rubs really badly on the rear part of the fender liner.

You are right about Malek's set-up. He was running the 265/35/19's on 10" wheels so the stretch helped with fitment. He later switched to 275/30/19's which is what I recommend.

Seems people are able to get away with a 295/30/19 tire with et25 in the rear. Will I be able to get away from rubbing with a et22 running pss tires?
