Aside from the relatively short tire life, they've been outstanding however, they're not available in the suggested tire size for my car, given the new wheel sizes.

New wheels:
19x8.5 ET 32
19x9.5 ET 35

BBS Suggested wheel size:

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.
No offense but you consider spacers to be "silly" but I would say so is running a 275 in this situation.
