The 315s fit without any clearance issues. The 265s can touch the fender liners.
I know you already did it and I agree with everyone who thinks that this car can't have too much tire at the rear. Having said that, don't you think anything over 295 is a bit too wide for the stock 10 inch wide wheels?
And a question: How would you feel about a 245/35 19 (stock) fr and 295/30 19 rear set up on stock wheels and suspension (basically maximizing the rear tire width alone while the rest remain stock) for mostly road use? Why or why not?
