correct, the 255 front is ideal. Some of my track going guys will run 265s in front though.
255/35/19 is actually slightly larger than stock OD by 1.05%, a 265/30/19 is 1.98% smaller in OD, the 255/30/19 is 2.92% smaller in OD.

You would be better off with the 255/35/19 pr 265/30/19 i would think for getting closer to stock OD

We generally sell the 255/285 front/rear setup on this wheel size though.
