255/35/19 & 275/35/19 ZCP Will They Rub?

Does anyone know if 255/35/19's on the front and 275/35/19's on the rear will rub using the stock wheels?

Good to know. I am thing all-seasons (mild winters here) but may end up going with M3 18" wheels in stock sizes. However, I would prefer to have an extra set of ZCP rims in case I ever broke a wheel.

I'm swapping the stock tires with a set of ultra high performance all season tires as we don't get enough snow and I don't drive enough (walk to work) to justify $2000 on a winter wheel set. Anyway, I had the tires shipped to my dealer so they would be on the car when I pick it up tomorrow. Staying with 245 in the front but going to 275 in the back and they said it wouldn't be a problem.

On another note, anyone looking to pick up a set of the stock PS2's with only 4 delivery miles on them let me know!

Tire was Michelin 255/35-19 X-ice North, studded. Tire take closed to mudguard when turn steering wheel at the end. Its fall about 0,5 inch to plastic (mudguard) - u know! I make desicion that 245/35 also too big but 235/35 works well...

Now I have Michelin X-ice north studded 235/35-19 on front and 255/35-19 on rear, which is good!
