Throwing some 285s in the back

So my 275 rear tires are just about done and i picked up a new set. got some Nitto invos in 285/30/19 setup for the back. Fronts im keeping the same spec as current at 245/35/19/..... i have my fenders shaved and am running 19x10 et 35 wheels currently with a 5mm spacer (so et30) and no rubbing what so ever with my PSS in the back.... anyone know if i will rub with the new setup? do Invos run more square then PSS?

and yes yes i know i went from PSS to Invo... but its just temporary till i can get my hands on a batch of the Potenza re71r tires.

Invos are very small tires; I ran 285 Invos for a while and they're a rounder profile. I swapped to 295 V12's and started rubbing like crazy (had to pull fender for clearance). It looked more like a 305 tire when compared to the Invo. And V12's aren't even that large so I think Invos run very small.

interesting... because when i put the 285 invo and the 275 PSS side by side the 285 was slightly wider.
