Suggestion for narrower 275 tires?

Hi guys, I am currently running yokohama AD08 275/30/19 on my E92 with stock sport suspension, however I am rubbing my rear fender (rolled) only when I make a sharp turn or hit a bump at higher speed. Does anyone know which brand would have a narrower 275 tire or should I down size to 265?/35/19? Or should I switch to Michelin SPP or Bridgestone Re-11? I think both of them run wide as well. Any input would be appreciate!!

Here is my spec

Front BBS CH-R 8.5 x 19 ET32 yokohama 245/35/19
Rear BBS CH-R 9.5 x 19 ET35 yokohama 275/30/19

Falken 722 but it's an all season tire.

I have 235/35-19 fronts and 275/30-19 rears with no rubbing.
I'm running Forgestar f14 with +35 both front and rear.

Your tires are too big. And ad08's are wide to start. Run 265/30

Continental DW's run a little narrower and have a fairly rounded transition from sidewall to tread.
