Question: Did the aftermarket wheels come with the car when you bought it, or did you put them on? A 10'' is preety skinny.

Non runflat rear 305/30-19 on 19 x 11 rims, no tubbing. I get some lite sidewall rub on twisty roads with tire sidewall flex...........
Fronts are non runflat 275/35-18 on 18 x 9.5

Can't get any wider under the fenders. Don't believe you could put this size (305) tire on a 10" rim. You probably are looking at 285 or 295 max. If even that wide. 10" is pretty narrow.

You can always go back and edit your post. Yes a 305 depending on manufacturer, will fit after you lower the car.:laughing:

There is less than 1/8" inside clearance to sidewall with proper backspace wheel.

You're running a too tall tire already (40 series) :surprised, go 295/35, or 305 no problem. It all depends on your offset.
