Garage List
well according to michelin specs
the widest you can fit on a 9.5" wheel is 285
if you go to 295, the minimum width is 10"

On the stock 19" 220M wheels the widest I have seen is 255 in the front and 275 on the back. The side walls were popping out a bit and I don't think 285 would be a good idea.

235 would be too skinny for the fronts right?

You should look at the recommended maximum wheel width of each tire. Beyond that width installation could be hard and you may not benefit performance wise.
