Will tis setup rub?

So I picked up an 08 e92 M3 recently and now I'm on the search for some new tires. Looking at Continentals extreme contact. Issue I'm having is they don't make them in 265/35/19 for the rears. My current setup is 245/35/19 in fronts on 19" Alufelgen SF-71 in 19x8.5 ET + 15mm and rears are 265/35/19 19x9.5 ET + 20mm. I'm running the H&R sport springs and not having any rubbing issues. The tires I'm looking to switch to are 255/35/19 in front and 275/35/19 in rear. Will this work or will it rub? Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

not sure if it will rub or not. but there is continental extreme contact in the size you want 265/35/19. just that it is extreme contact DW, not extreme contact DWS

Thanks anaconatp for the heads up. I was aware there was the size in the DW. Just looking for something all season at this point and not sure if I should go with 275 in the rear or downsize to 255. Would really like to run 255 in front and 275 in rear to give it that staggered look, but may not be able to. Still not sure

you have spacers... If it rubs than get a smaller spacer. Problem solved

I'm running 275/35 Conti DW on 19x10.5 +20 and it's fine. Your setup will be too.

275/35R19 is pretty safe. 255/35R19 with lowering may actually get a little rubbing up front.
