If they work, well, that is great. Sounds good on the handling.
In person it looks better and after rolling of the fenders it seems like it can get even wider tire.

I got rubbing though, right front wheel rubs the oil cooler grill just a tiny bit while turning left all the way.

UPDATE...

So I hate to say this but I rub... Front tires rub the fender liner, while turning right the left front rubs the front fender liner and so on on the other side. I dont think there will be much solution for it unless you pull out the fender liner. Rear rub even though I am rolled, I am not sure where it rubs though but any rubing is not acceptable for me. I am faced with either running smaller than 275 on the rear and smaller than 245 on the front or selling off the rims.

Nooo! You think it's rubbing cuz your lowered on performance suspension? Well that sucks. Was it just you in the car when it was rubbing or did you have passengers too?

How bad is the rubbing? If it's just the fender liner, you can probably make a few adjustments.

Yes, I had myself +2 passengers. Even if you are not lowered at all you will rub because the shock will still compress and let the tire into wheel well.

Unfortunatelly no, there is nothing you can do to the liner as the wheel is up against it pretty hard, plus in my case I have dinan cone right behind it thats very solid and not letting the liner move any further and on the other side I have a oil cooler grill that sticks out even further than drivers liner.

There is one thing you can do for the rear. You can try to heat the fender liner and roll it with a similar roller they use for Dynamat installs hoping you mend it into shape that will let the wheel go further in. As for the fronts you gotta get a less wide of a tire or change the offset of the wheel so as it the sidewall stays away from a liner.

I cant afford one more set of tires so if any of you considers this setup I would say go with 235 35 19 front and 265 30 19 rear, with those I didn't seem to have any issues with 4 people in the car and hauling ass on the deserted road of SC.

More update...

Went back to my Alufelgen setup with 8.5 front tire and learned that 245 30 19 Michelin PS 2 also rubs my fender liner, as for the rears 275 so far no rubbing. I am paranoid at this point.

Can you post a photo or two if possible? 8.5 ET35?

My 8.5 ET40 with 245/35/19 Hankooks don't rub anything.

Michelin PS2 are amazing tires, unfortunately they're prone to rubbing on aggressive setups. Maybe if you went 235/35/19 and 265/30/19 rears with the PS2's and adjusted camber you'd be gold. Sometimes a little stretch isn't a bad thing. =)

It rubs with both sets using 245 30 19 PS2's. , Currently working on adjusting fender liners, but it doesnt look too good so far.

If I run 235 front and 265 rear I think they will fit. I had those sizes at the beginning and it didn't rub with 4 people in the car and no fender roll. I just cant afford to get another set of tires at this point and my wife is about to go postal on me, lol.

Adjusted fender liners, best I could do is 2-3 mm clearance between tire shoulders and fender liner on both sides.

Questions:

1) Will I have crazy understeer if i go 235 front and keep 275 rears?
2) If i drop half an inch on the front will my 2-3 mm clearance go away or as the tire goes in the fender I will be fine? Thoughts?

Are your fender liners different from mine since you have the M-Sport bumper?

They are different but not by much. The buttom that ataches to the bumper has a dip in. They are identical to the non m sport one in those places where I have "the rub" going on.

If you haven't bought the tires yet I would suggest going with 235/265 because you will rub (with Ps2's or any other tire with square sidewall thats as tall as PS2's), take my word for it.

Michelin's are great handlers yet I noticed that the sidewall of 35 looks like a 40 almost. I was able to stick 2 fingers between the fender and a tire, now its just one.

I have the tires already sitting in my garage. If they don't fit, I'll decide what to do at that point.

Maybe since I'm lowered, the geometry is changed enough to avoid rubbing in the front? I have my fingers crossed.

I should've turned the wheels to see when I test-fitted the wheels with the 245/35 Michelins.
