Question Recommended tire sizes for 19x9 & 19x10.5 wheels on '09 E92 M3 (not lowered)

What tire sizes are recommended for an '09 E92 M3 with 9" front and 10.5" rear 19" wheels (HRE P40)?

The best I could come up with to maximize the tread width for traction and stay as close as possible to the total wheel and tire diameter is 275/30-19 front and 295/30-19 rear. I can also go down to 265/30-19 in front if there will be a rubbing issue when turning the wheels all the way. For the rear, there is no 285 option with the tires I want to buy. (Yokohama ADVAN Neova AD08).

Does anyone know if the setup above will cause any rubbing issues? Anyone running these sizes now? The car is not and will not be lowered in the future. I need as much rear traction as possible to support an ESS VT600 SC kit. The 295/30 rear's will give me an 11.5" tread width.

Thanks in advance!
