Tire size alternatives? for 19s

Initially I wanted to put a set of 245/35/19 fronts and 275/35/19 rears on my Neez Eurocross 19x8.5 front and 19x10 rears...but the lack of sizing availability for RE-11 and AD08 has stopped me from progressing any further....

Stalker recommended me 265/30/19f and 295/30/19r in another thread...I used the tire size calc and the rotational difference is almost negligible(~1%) ...

My main concern is if there is any negative performance impact using this set up...I also played around with some other sizes with the calculator, but at the end of the day I rather have someone experience teach me

I know PS2 are offered in the sizes I want, but I still have me OEM 19s with them that are barely used...so I want to try something different...

Some additional info:
It is my DD, and will see some track time(4-6 times, pending schedule)
I am dropped on PSS10, not tucked; I know these aren't the best pics, but they were taken the day of being dropped..but should give an idea of my ride height



Thanks!

I don't think you can put 265 on 8.5"


I'd go 255 front, 285/35 or 295/30 rear but check your wheel offsets, if they are aggressive double check make sure you won't rub.

I believe it's ET15 front and ET22 rear.

I was considering your recommended set up too, just that I wanted to hear from you guys first.

Also, not having 275/35/19 was the issue, not the fronts. But when I go 30 profile tires, I'd likely have to change the front from the ideal 245/35/19(I think).

actually is there any confirmation that 275/35/19 RE-11 or AD08 is really not available..or are they just hard to source?
