Bottom. Sidewalls look tough... not like rubber bands

The 30s will make F & R almost identical in diameter. Downside IMO is higher overall numerical gear ratio (highway cruising) meaning slight decrease in economy and more inaccurate speedometer. The 35s will be 0.5 - 0.6" larger than stock with a slight amount of added weight. I do sort of like the beefier sidewall.

i have 30 profile tires on my 19s ... and i would have prefered the look of 35 profile tires... i think the 30s look a little too thin. i prefer the thicker side wall. once i am almost done with these set of tires, i am going for 35 on my rear... also, my speedo got more inaccurate by going 30, which i hate.

Don't forget the sidewall is a percentage of the width regardless of series. You are running 275/30/19 if you had a 295/30/19, you would have a radius almost identical to stock and with more sidewall.

295/30 is perfect for a 19x10.5

Remember that the width of your wheel changes how the tire will look. My 285/35/19 on a 10.5" wheel doesn't look anything like the one above.

I like the 30s better but the speedo problem would most likely bother me. I always feel unless you're on the track or canyons have the car look it's best. i am not saying the 35 setup looks ugly, but i just feel that performance wise the 35's would be my choice, but as far as down right sexiness.. 30's
