Went to discount tires and they said 235/35 19 in the front and 275/30 19 in the rear should work, but after mounting and driving off I noticed that and hard turns or fast dips in the road would cause a scraping noise so I figured I'm rubbing.

I think **********s recommended I go with 265 in the rear and supposedly I shouldn't rub right? I like the bigger/wider look of the 275s and feel that 10mm would make a noticeable difference (or would it not be that noticeable)

I'm coming in here to ask you guys for opinions on what my options are. Would rolling my fenders be enough for the rear? Or do I need to downsize on tires?

Appreciate the input. Here's some pics.
We usually recommend the following:

E9X (non M)
- 19"x8.5" ET35mm Front 235/35/19
- 19"x9.5" ET33mm Rear 265/30/19
