Default Rim Size vs. Tire Size

Hey guys,

I've got a 2016 GT PP and currently have a set of Bridgestone Blizzaks on the stock set of rims for winter. I'm looking to go for an aftermarket set to fit the stock Pirellis on but have a question regarding the size. The stock tires are staggered at 255 front, 275 rear with rims being 9 and 9.5 respectively. I'm looking at possibly going for the RTR Tech 7s, staggered 9.5 and 10.5.

From the research I've done so far, it seems like these tires are on the lower limit of what is acceptable for this rim size, but it IS doable. It also leaves me with options to go for a wider tire once these Pirellis are done with.

Any feedback would be welcome. Has anyone done a similar setup like this?
