would a 10inch fit at all?

I currently have 19in wheels on my EF XR8 with 265 & looks like a have plenty of room to fit 275 possibly 285, has anyone put a tyre size like that before?

Well it hasnt turned a wheel in anger yet, but there is no way it will rub. There is plenty of clearance and suspect people in back will not cause dramas. I do not have the car on superlows though...its just under factory height.
I have 255's on the front.
