I thought Alufelgen offsets were always published so not sure on that one.

But with the GTC wheel you'll have less clearance on the outside/guard side (4mm) and less on the strut side (8mm)... so even less chance of running a 265.

The only way you could run a 265 is if it was a Falken Fk452 with its really round sidewall but that defeats the purpose of going from 255 -> 265 in the search for extra grip cause those tyres are sh.it

Unless you go 9.5 ET62 (which can run a 265) I'd stick to 255. Even then, whilst I know 9.5 ET50 255/35/18 works in 18" setup I'm not sure on 19s, hence I'm considering the 245/35/19 route ...
I'll test it out and let you know how I go
