I'm probably going to run a R 265/35/19, which is marginally taller.. Anyone have any experience here? I know it's been quite well documented on the forums, and deemed no problem. Does anyone have any photos or confirmation?
I'm running 265/35/19 et22 9.5 with KW v2 without issue and I am slightly lowered. I am having a slight rubbing issue on the front with 245/35/19 et38 8.5. Going to investigate this weekend. The car has been raised a half inch since this photo from a few weeks ago.

Edit: The front was rubbing towards the top of the fender liner. I was able to fix by using a heat gun and pressure to push the fender liner inward at the points where rubbing was occurring.
