That's my set up exactly. What year is model is your car? With pre 2011 model year rear springs (progressive) I had some slight rubbing going over big dips in the road or places were the pavement surface changes like bridges. With 2011 rear M sport springs (linear) I did not. I also had my rear fenders rolled slightly before I switched from the progressive to linear springs in the rear.

Edit: I see that your car is a 2012. Hopefully since your car havs the linear rear springs you want have any rubbing with 255/35/19 rear Hankooks under any conditions. In case you do have some rubbing under those conditionas a slight fender roll should fix the issue.

Sorry to derail, any other benefits switching to linear springs?

Definitely. The linear springs take a lot of initial compression and bounce out of the rear end. That coupled with a good set of dampers really transforms the car.
