- WHEELS FRONT 9X19 ET29 REAR 10X19 ET40
-TIRES SIZE 255/35/ZR19 REAR 275/35/ZR19

19" wheels with 275 profile.. on a 323?

You might as well throw an anchor out.

Those rear tires are not 275/35. That stretch makes me think they are a 245mm wide tire, max.

275/35/19 is too tall for the non-M anyway.

Just slap them on and see how close they are? If you have them at home?

The tyres probably won't suit, but the wheels will be close.

Anything is possible if your willing to adapt the cars wheel arches, but that is a lot of tire to turn and will affect the power amd steering plus put a lot of strain on everything, would look quite high too even with 30% profile but would drive like crap
