Garage List
A question of fit.
I currently have Bridgestone Potenza RE-11s on the 18" Si wheels, staggered. I came across a set of Black Polish BBS CH-Rs yesterday and would like to continue to another set of RE-11s on those. Aside from the relatively short tyre life, they've been outstanding however, they're not available in the suggested tyre size for my car, given the new wheel sizes.

New wheels:
BBS CH-R BPO
19x8.5 ET 32
19x9.5 ET 35

BBS Suggested tyre sizes:
235/35/19
265/30/19

Q: Would it be alright to bump the rears to 275/30/19, to accept the Bridgestones? If not, I'll be mounting Michelin Pilot Super Sports, though losing my discounted pricing at Bridgestone. Is anyone else in use of 275s on the 19x9.5 rear with a similar offset? I don't want spacers or anything silly, I'd just like for it to fit, albeit properly.
