You're good to go! Shouldn't rub at all depending on tire sizes, I personally have 18x9 ET26, and mine is lowered and doesnt rub with rolled fenders

With your specs, you wont need to at all, you can probably even go 255s in the back

I'm running a 19x9.5ET45 rear with a 265 and no rubbing issues! Not sure if the coupe is wider in the back though.
