305/35's square on stock GT350 wheels, does the front clear?

Hey everyone!

Just picked up my (new to me) 2016 GT350!! Took a look at my current tires on it and I've got PS4s on the front with about 8/32 tread and some Cup 2s with about 5.5/32 tread. I'm starting to look right now for what I can replace my Cup 2's with and realized it's actually kinda hard to find tires in 305/35/19 that people still make! My local Discount doesn't have PSS and Tirerack has them back-ordered.

I was thinking of running some NT555 G2's at 305/35 square (they don't make a 295/35). Not doing it so I can rotate (I want to keep the 11inch wheel in the rear) but mainly doing it so there's an accessible tire that I can get. Has anyone run 305/35 in the front? I see several 305/30's but I'm not sure if that extra tread wall will rub.

Also open to any other suggestions for what to do!

Are those the carbon wheels? And are they 19 inch?
And are they the ones you are planning to use?
Because I would recomend something more robust, this is the GT4 spec for them.

The brakes are powerful and reliable. The car is fitted with lightweight 18” x 11” forged alloy wheels from Forgeline and the car as tested was fitted with Pirelli P-Zero DH 305/680 R18 tyres however the tyre brand and compounds vary

They are the 19inch OEM GT350 wheels. They have a 19” x 10.5” front and 19” x 11” rear.

I’m just looking for a good street tire right now. Will need to do something different for track usage.

Mainly concerned with the rub up front if I ran a 305/35/19 tire on the stock rims.
 
They will definitely work. Might look a little weird though since the front wheels are 10.5" so there will be slightly larger bulge on the fronts than there would be on the rear. Clearance wise, you're 100% going to be fine.
