Cool, should be a great setup. I should've gotten x10.5" rears, but oh well.

Why those sizes? Sidewall is going to be tiny and look odd!
True, I totally skipped over the sidewall. OP, highly recommend 265/35 and 295/30.

Because we have to stick to certain laws in Europe. the circumference of the tyre must be only 2% different, and the speedometer must never show less than the actual distance driven.
That is the reason why the Tires are in this size.

At that point, I'd pay for a tune so that you can adjust the tire diameter and the ECM will calculate the mileage correctly, unless they don't allow for that. Honestly, with those laws in place, I would have stuck with 19s, because those super thin sidewalls are gonna feel like crap...

…...we`ll see, adjust the tire diameter and the ECM can be a Solution when the Tires are ready for rubbish bucket

But I believe those sizes are more than a 2% difference in the wrong direction.

Yeah, the rears are 4% smaller. It's not the wrong direction, though, in terms of the law. His mileage will be higher than indicated, which is more truthful than running a larger tire and showing less mileage than actual.
