Fenders are now rolled.. What size rear tire?

Ok thanks to Alex and Kevin at AK Motorwerk in NJ was rear fenders were rolled successfully for a very affordable price. So Im going to be getting tires for avant garde 310s Im having powder coated. Front tires will be 235/35/19s and Im not sure what rears to put. I was going to go with 245/35/19s because I couldnt find anyone to roll the rear fenders for me. But will 265 rears now work with no rubbing issues? I am lowered on KW
V1s. And the rear wheels are +22 offset. They are off an E46 M3. So a pretty aggressive fitment. I want to stay away from rubbing issues. But not sure if the
265/30/19s will fit with no rubbing. Anyone have any ideas? Heres how my car sits now.

im assuming u mean +22 on a 9.5 width wheel. if so i rub a bit on large bumps or steep driveways with -3camber in rear with a 265/30-18. I would go to a 255 to be safe.

I apologize, yes its +22 on a 9.5 inch wheel. I was actually going to go with 245/35/19 rears just so there would be no rubbing. But since I had my fenders rolled I thought maybe a 265/30 would fit. But I think I might try to stay safe and keep away from the 265s.

i think a 265/30 would be ok on a 9.5 rear with an ET of 22, especially since you rolled your fenders....im not sure though

Ive probably drove alot of people nuts on this forum with this tire questions. LOL But it seems I get different answers from people with similar setups. So Im not sure who to talk to. Id like to get the 265/30/19 tires, but if its going to rub, I want to stay away. I dont want to mess with camber and unevenly wear my tires. But I also dont want to rub either. SO I guess Im caught in a situation lol. Hopefully someone with the same setup can chime in with their opinions.

I think Im going to play it sage and use 235/35/19 fronts and 245/35/19 rears> That way I avoid any rubbing issues.
