Should work. A couple of us use 8.5x19 ET35 rims and 245/35-19 tires. I personally use the same rim dimensions and 235/35-19 tires (front; Falken FK-452). I would not use different tires on the front and rear axle. IMO the 235/35-19 Toyo T1R would be the much better choice in your case.

To echo what Eugene's said, I would go with 235/35 in the front instead of the 245.

Using different tires on front and rear will cause any problems?..
And actually, I have one used rear tire(90%) and another one is new. This is
probably not good right??
Anyway for the front, I'll use 235 35 19 t1r.

It can. E.g. in rain, when the different tire brands show noticeable different behavior. Don't forget, the tires are the only connection between car and road, so they are very important.

With the correct offset, 245 will work on both the coupe and sedan.
