Help me out with winter Tire Sizes

Stock 19 rim width is 8.5 front, 9.5 rears.
Tire Size:
245/35 Fronts
265/35 Rears

I'm looking at the Blizzak LM-60s. They come in 235/35, 255/35, 265/35.

What tire combination, front and rear would be my best bet? I dont want the tires to look retarded either. If they made a 245/35 I'd just go with stock sizing front and rear...I'm not sure know why they dont.

On the stock 19s?
Isn't the 255 width a little much for the 8.5 inch rim?

You might better off selling your 19s, and get stock 18s for winter which has wider and cheaper tire choices for winter.
