275/35/19 or 275/30/19 on stock rears?

I'm starting to shop around for new tires and since the choices for 265/35/19 is limited, I figured a step up to 275/35/19 would give me more possibilities. Will 275/35/19 clear on stock suspension or will I have to go down to 275/30/19? Will it cause a problem if I ever decide to lower the car with H&R or Eibach springs?

Also, I see the Nitto Invo tires are very popular here. Where is everyone getting them from? I know Tirerack doesn't sell them and that's where I bought my last 4 sets of tires for other cars.

It will FIT but OD decreases almost 0.6in which I wouldn't recommend.



If you have to choose between two, go with 275/35/19

on the 9.5 we like the 265/35-19.
We have used the 285/30-19 on the 10" wide wheels and
295/30-19 on the 10.5" wheels.

Would 295 fit on a 10" wheel?
