cable advices needed plz

Hello, I bought yamaha 1065, MA BR5 as front, brfx for rears, and brw10 sub, br center.

I guess 2.5mm should be fine for the front and center. but I have a bit of problem for rears. Since I didn't plan it well I had to route cable along the corners of the room. one rear speaker will need 9 meters/30 feet cable and the other one need 13 meters/42 feet cable.
Do I need 3.5mm or 4mm for the rears then because of the length?

thanks a lot for any of your inputs.

2.5mm will be just fine for those lengths. You're still talking very short lengths in the big scheme of things.
Ok, the salesman told me I have to use 4mm for the long distance, but i was skeptical.
