That's part of why 265/30R19 and 295/30R19 is popular, it keeps the height difference similar to stock.
Given the sizes in the picture, his wheels are probably staggered.
275/30R19 square would probably be the best for what you are doing. With the 20mm offset on the wheels you propose, you could probably fine-tune the fit/stance a little with spacers to get exactly the positioning that you want within the wheel well as alofoque described doing.
I would love to see a pic of this.. can anyone chime in.
This is so much help!
