Best Fitment

Front Wheels are 19x9.5 et 20 looking at either 265/30/19 or 275/30/19. Rear Wheels are 19x11 et25 running a 295/30/19. Car will have TCK D/A coilover with camber/caster plates, will be running fairly low. Camber will be in the -1.5 to -2 degree range. Looking between Yokohama AD08s, PSS, and Vredesteins.

What is the best front tire size?

Bump. Anyone have experience with 265 vs 275 fronts?

The best front tire choice for the specifications that you provided is the 275-30-19 tire.

I can post a picture of my personal car to help you make your decision.

^^^Thanks. Looks awesome.

I have seen a couple people that have ran 265/35/19 and 295/30/19. Would the .3" taller overall diameter of the front wheels make any difference?

I assume trying 305/30/19 rears I will be rubbing on the 19x11 et25 wheels, unless I increase my negative camber.

You will rub with those specifications, even if you increase camber.

You can run the 265-35-19, however cosmetically the 275-30-19 looks far better, gives more clearance from rubbing and it matches the overall diameter better. Its important to try and match the overall wheel/tire diameter difference between front and rear and keep close to stock if possible, otherwise it will trigger your DSC more often and make it more sensitive when you don't want it to be.

Is your car lowered by any chance?

Then you will rub with 265-35-19 on those wheel specs. 275-30-19 is the correct choice, plus it maintains the overall diameter differential better.
