They should fit, but your looking at a tire that is nearly 3cm taller than stock, so your speedo will be out (~4% lower)

Bit tall, but it'll work.

Firstly are you on RFTs or non RFTS

sorry, one last thought, are you changing your fronts as well? Otherwise you might have DTC pains!

i assume you are still on RFT's? If so just swap for NON RFT's you will say 'Thankyou' every day. Ride a lot softer say 50% (you might find a little to stiffen the suspension). But grip is the biggest difference 100% better.

I am about to change wheels and tyres and decided to go by Stu's recommendation ie: Front: 235/35/19 and Rear: 265/30/19. That means my 18" style 193m's will be up for sale at the end of October.

You'll get a 275 in the rear no probs and while I've not confirmed it, it looks like a 245 will fit on the front imho
