My car is very low though, doubt you could fit a finger in there. It's only rubs occasionally when I have more than one passenger, I'm sure if I raised the car slightly it wouldn't be an issue, ever. I've compared tire widths on tirerack and the 255 seems like a better fit for the 1 series.

I just threw this feeler out there in case anyone was interested, I know the 265/30/19 are ideal for the 3 series. Someone might be interested in having a spare set of rears or possibly upgrade their 255/30/19 PSS in a swap. If nothing comes of it I'll hang onto them as they're a fantastic tyre. The 19s are no longer at the car and I'm running 18's right now so they are not accumulating any km's.

Which wheels are you planning to run in that size/offset?
The SF-71 19 x 9 came in ET48.

18" Track wheels:
F: 18 x 8.5 ET45 w/ 225/40/18
R: 18 x 9.5 ET62 w/ 265/35/18 (note the high offset rear to allow for 265s)

My 19" street wheels will be GTCs:
F: 19 x 8.5 ET 45 w/ 225/35/19
R: 19 x 9.5 ET 50 w/ 255/30/19 OR 245/35/19
