19x8.5 front wheel, 245/35 instead of 235/35?

Hi, as Christmas approaches, I'm planning out my gift to myself.

On my new wheels that I plan to buy, (19x8.5 and 19x10) I planned to get 235/35 and 265/30 tires. However, the Continental DWS in 235/35 won't be in stock til after. Would it be alright to just upsize to 245/35?

Thanks. Hope you all had a good Thanksgiving.

I'm running 255/35-18 in the front on 8.5-18 et 32 with no rubbing. Suspension is BMW performance suspension. Also for whatever its worth I only recommend the Conti's for the street. Do not take them near the track. My brand new extreme contacts literally started chunking on my first run. I had to replace them with less than 1000 total miles. For street only they are fine.

Any pics of your front wheels? I have 235/40/18 and thinking of 245 or 255 because the 235 from Conti DWS looks like 215

Okay thanks for the help. The front wheel is 8.5", ET30, 19". I'm on stock non sport suspension. Just to clarify, the 245/35/19 tires would fit w/o problems? & I won't be tracking the car, thanks for the warning though.
