Welcome to the Werkz.

Both front and rear tyres are one size up from standard (from memory), did you check how the rolling diameter of the original tyres compare to the new tyres? Also check the offset of the original wheels to the new ones, that might give you some insite to where the problem lies.
Custom rims, wheel tire packages for your ride - RIMSnTIRES.com
Felgen-Katalog - BMW-Treff - der Treffpunkt für alle BMW-Fans und -Fahrer
You should be able to see (either on the tyre or body work) where it is rubbing. I'd almost put money on the rear wheels making contact with the external guards, but check the front suspension for signs of contact as well.

Sounds like the 285's are too big for the front, if that's where you put them.

I had a set of Sryling 176 wheels from an E65 on my E38, they were 245/45/19 (19x9 +24 front) & 275/40/19 (19x10 +24 rear). Not what you'd call a lot of space to spare anywhere, but no rubbing either. The only reason that go rid of them was that they were a royal pain to keep clean, just too much time required to keep them in shape.

A bright red looks good on some cars. What color are your wheels and car?
