I am not sure about the corresponding front size 255 if you plan to keep them staggered accordingly.

You can put 255 front, 285 rear on the stock OEM wheels.

With the right wheel, 295/35R18 can fit rear (some have reported going wider, but that is the widest that Tire Rack officially lists). That tire is too wide for stock wheels though.

So 275/40R18 is no problem, and does fit on stock wheels.

As Mr. Harris mentioned, 255/40R18 is fine on the front.

It's the biggest you can go on those wheels though without upgrading the width.

I believe the OPs question was specific to OEM 19s.

275/35/19 will fit the OEM 19's.

Anything taller or wider is overkill on a 9.5" wheel...
