Your car a coupe or sedan? Did you also increase the front size as well?

I'm running 275/30/19
10.5 wide wheel
40et rears
I'm not rubbing (I'm not lowered)

I think with a 9.5 wide wheel and 35et you should be fine to run 275s in the rear. Well at least at stock ride height.

do you have any room to bump out that offset a bit?

Stock wheels are only 18X8 up front and 18X8.5" rear. You can go wider up front on the OE wheels, but wider tires for the rear will be outside the recommended rim with range.

Actually i do...
I was thinking if i dont lower the ride when these tires go i would go with 285s in the rear.

As far as 275 with spacers at stock height, that should fit also.
Probably 5-10mm spacers.

I've had 3ppl plus golf bags in my current setup and no rubbing even when going over bumps.

I have M6 reps on the back that are 40 offset (19*9.5). Right now I'm running 265's and there looks to be plenty of room to go to 275's with that 40 offset.

Coupe w/ sports package.

I've got an e93 (the rear is EVEN lower than the coupe's rear), and I have M3 reps with et35 offsets all around. I'm not rubbing at all... you're good to go.

have a buddy with et33 offsets in the rear and he has it lowered. It's also not rubbing

Just to help some members here.
I am running Iforged Daytonas

Front: 19X8 - 235/35/19
Rear: 19X10 (not sure about offset maybe +38) - 275/30/19
Tires: Kumho SPT

There is slight rubbing in the rear in dips and cornering. Rolling the fenders will most likely resolve this issue. If I went with Toyos or Falkens there probably wouldn't have been an issue.

Maybe I'm reading wrong, but I think he wants to get 275 all around.... I think 275's up front is really asking for too much...

+1, i've got 275's on 18x9.5 rear rims and they rub pretty bad if there's people sitting in the car even after rolling my fenders...
