Tire Suggestions 265 30 19 and 305 25 20

I am just curious what tires you guys are running or prefer out there? I am having a hard time finding these sizes available on tirerack.com.... I have a set of Iforged wheels coming in next week and would like to purchase sometimes here in the near future. All your suggestions or comments are greatly appreciated! One other thing..... should I stick with a 265 in the front or a 275 or does it not really matter? Thanks again.

FYI I run a 275/30/19 in the front with no problems.

so the difference between the 265 30 and the 275 30 vs. the sidewall heigth of the 305 25 is not noticable. Thanks for the info. I just want to make sure before I purchase. I origianally wanted 275 up front but was told the 265 would look better (sidewall height between fronts and backs). Thanks again!

Well I can't say for sure with the 19/20 setup. For me the 275/30/19 in the front and the 355/25/19 in the rear works well and IMHO it looks great!

The 265 will have LESS sidewall height.

Do you understand what the numbers mean????

Yes I do realize that a 305 25 20 has a 3.0 inch sidewall, a 265 30 19 has a 3.12 in sidewall, and a 275 30 19 has a 3.24 inch sidewall. With that said my question is when comparing front and rear sidewall heigths will you notice that the sidewall on a 275 tire is a quater of an inch wider than the 305 in the rear. Thanks again.
