Will 265/30/19 rub on 19x9.5 rear rim?

Hello everyone this is my first post but I'm sure not my last. I just wanted anyone's opinion and/or experience as to whether running 265/30/19 tires on 19x9.5 rear wheels will present any rubbing issues? The fronts are 19x8.5 with 245/35/19 tires on an '05 330ci cabrio if that matters. Any feedback, recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated, THX!!

On Tue. Mar 24 I'm going to attempt to put some Bridgestone Potenza 275/35/18's on the rear of my 2009 328i. I know the 09 M3's have an option of 265/35/19's but their wheel wells, I'm relatively certain, are more flared. If you go tire rack, pick your tire and then go into the specification page for that tire you will see numerous numbers, sizes, diameters, tread width, section width, required wheel width. Compare those numbers to your existing tires and then start looking at your car. The biggest place to look, in my opinion, is the front wheel well with the wheel fully turned, i.e. turn wheel full left and check the back of the tire in relationship to the back of the left wheel well. This is guessing at it's best but you can go over sized quite a bit if you do some studying.

For what it's worth got it done. Even put a 10mm spacer on too, 12mm up front. little bit of a "touching" issue on the rears. Removing the spacers would have solved it. However, instead I put some Koni shocks on, raised it enough to stop the problem. See below. Click mouse second time picture enlarges.
