Wide rims on lowered xi

Hello guys so I know there might be other threads of this but can't always find for xi cars or if there xi I can't find lowered ones. So I found a nice pair of rims for a good deal they're 19x9.5 with offset 35 will I be running with these? I was thinking 235/35 tires but should I go smaller? My fenders are rolled front and rear or hr coilovers and lowered quite a bit I had 18x8.5 with 245/40 tires and rubbed in rear cuz of fender bolt not sure if that was cuz of width or profile size. Let me know if they will fit or what I need to do to make them fit

I have the same coilovers and ran rear style 68s (9s) with a 225. I had minor rubbing so I would recommend a 225 but that would be significant stretch on a 9.5
