Largest tire size with OEM 19" wheels

Did a quick search on this topic, honestly didn't spend a lot of time so my apologies if this question has been answered.

Running OEM 19" rims with EDC and 15mm and 12mm spacers on the PS2's that came on the car. Looking for a new set of tires and want to know the groups opinion on the largest tire size and brand that can be run without rubbing issues. I also realize that the total diameter of the tire can differ based on tire brand.

Thanks for the help.

You could run a 255/35/19 front and a 275/35/19 rear. To be honest though with a 8.5" front I wouldn't go beyond the 245/35/19 and therefore I wouldn't want to increase the stagger even more with a puny 245 tire on the front so I would also keep the 265/35/19 that came on the car. I wouldn't go with the larger tires unless you go with the ZCP (359) wheels, which are 9" front and 10" rear.

With ZCP wheels you could have 255/35-19 and 295/30-19. But will it blend?
