Anything over about 26.0" OD in front will rub. Most folks running square setups are using 18" wheels and 275/35-18 tires, OD is about 25.6.

265/35/19 is probably too tall for the front. You might want to look at running 265/30/19. But before that, are you dropped at all?

I've got a set of 18" TE37. I run Michelin PS2 256/35/18 in the front, and from the looks of it, I've still some some clearance from the liner. I'm running stock height though.

I've seen people run 255/35 265/30, and 275/30 with those wheels. I would go for 275/30's if it were me.
