Help with front tires *pics inside*

Guys, please help me make a smart decision here. My knowledge of wheels and tires are limited

Current setup:

F 235/35 19 ET37
B 265/30 19 ET39

oem M-sport suspension (No drop)

I wanted to go with wider tires on my oem 313 wheels. So far I have a set of 275/30 on order for the back. The question is can i go up one size in the front to 245/35?

I'm using Toyo T1R tires, and i know the tire will physically fit on the rim, but will it rub once installed on the car?

I've seen posts saying that as long as you have a somewhat agressive offset it will not rub, can anyone please elaborate on this? I thought as long as you stay clear of the oilcooler fan and air duct as seen in the pictures it will be fine.

Looks like you've got about 2cm to the plastic in front of the wheels, so I really doubt that the 245/35/19 would rub.

The only concern with 245/35 on the ET37 is rubbing on the inside. I think you'll be fine though.

yeah, about that.. when you say inside - what exacly do you mean?
is it to keep distance between the shocks and inside edge of the tire/rim?
