your front fenders will be annihilated because of your offset and tire size, offset in the rear is fine but will rub with 275.

225/35/19 for the front and might be fine, 265/30/19 in the rear and you will be fine with a fender roll.

Rub? Dropped on HR race, the car may not even move.

What are the widths on the rims?

Guessing its the standard 8.5/9.5" combo, you need a 225/35/19 front tire and a 245/35 rear or a 255/30, a slim 265/30 would fit with a fender roll and some camber.

+1

Based on my research, 275/30's are iffy with ET39 on a coupe, if they are not lowered.
