Anyone get away with this setup

I found a really good deal on a set of 265 35 19 super sports (I know the 265 30 19) is recommended. Just looking to see if anyone has run this exact setup on their car...

Stock e92 sport suspension.

On rear : 19x9.5 ET35 wheels (CS7) 265 / 35 /19 Michelin Super Sports

Will it rub? If so, is it on the sides or top?

Thanks

The 265/30 vs a 265/30; give you a diameter of 26.3 inches vs 25.25.
This means that the sidewall is going to be .5 inches taller.
You might rub. On the top probably. You need to specify wheel offset. That will matter a lot.
I run a 275/30 with no rubbing with a+35 offset. The 275 has a diameter of 25.5 so it's still not nearly as tall as the tire you are talking about. Do a search, I think someone is running that size.

I specified the offset as 35...


Through the searches I found, I saw one guy that saud blizzaks worked and others saying it didn't with unknown tire brand.
