I wouldnt go any more then a 245/35 on the rears.
Either way, whatever width tyre you get, a profile height shouldnt go much further then 35.
It all depends on how low your car is, or if you want stretched look, get a thinner tyre. If you want the rims to fill out the guards with the tyres, get a 245.
In terms of guard rolling, I personally would just do it anyway.
Maybe a spacer could help your cause if you want the offset to a be lesser number.

Are your fenders rolled at all? The rears are a little on the aggressive side, so you'll likely need to run a slight stretch in order not to rub with a setup like that.

Nope fenders are not rolled, I have installed the 245/35 rears and so far no rubbing at all
