275/30/19 or 255/35/19?

Which is a better set-up in front to go with 295/30/19 in the rear?

I am a fan of 275/30 to minimize the stagger but I wouldn't go that wide with anything narrower than a 9.5" front wheel.

You know I saw a 275/30/19 front and 293/30/19 rear setup on a ZCP car and the sidewall didn't look pinched at all. Although I do generally agree that a 275 width tire needs a 9.5" width tire, I don't think it would make that much of a difference.

How does the sidewall of the 275/295 look on the ZCP setup in person? Too thin?

My debate of going to 255/275 or 275/295 is still ongoing, but I'll need to decide in a few months as the stock Pirellis are almost done

Was the reason for the switch a functional decision, as in the feel wasn't right on the ZCPs?

I just wanted a new pair of shoes. Didn't want black and I was growing tired of the factory silver. Those the Titanium CH-R's...................Phil
