what size tires would you run on 19x10s up front and 19x11s in back?? I was thinking 275/35/19s and 295/35/19s. Or should they be 30 series for a 19 inch rim?? I dont want the rubber band look, but unfortunately the wheels I want only come in 19s. Also, could you go wider in the back on the 11 inch rim without rubbing?

so maybe this is a stupid question, but why, if they're the same size wheels (19s in this case) would you want a 35 series on the front and a 25 on the back...wont that make the overall wheel different diameters front to back in addition to giving it a nose high attitude with the thicker tire in front?

You want to stay with in 2% of the stock circumference. A 275/35/19 is way over the amount. 275/30/19 is a good match for the stock 265/40/17 front tire.

For the rear 305/30/19 is a better match for the stock 295/35/18. A 315/25/19 is acceptable but may look funny with that short of a sidewall. :cheers:
