I've always been a fan of fat tires in the rear...but don't want to jeapardize the performance of the car either. So, it's a fine balance between "looks" and performance. Performance wins in my book...but, if I can go a little wider and not lose anything, than all the better!
The section width of the actual 275/19 tire is not that much wider than the 265/19 tire. Both will offer you a little curb protection for the lip of the wheel. Going any larger is simply adding unnecessary weight that will negatively impact performance.
The best is yet to come...
