is anyone running 265/40/18 or 265/35/19 square setups?

is anyone running either of these?
i know its the stock rear size, but does it fit up front with the stock tire size?
i would like to avoid buying tires that don't fit up front if at all possible!
i also would like to avoid making my speedo even more incorrect at speed, so i would rather not go lower profile.

I know there are guys running even wider than that in a square setup for TRACK wheels/tires (meaning different wheels, likely with more aggressive offsets). Not sure how many folks are doing that on the street though.

yea, but what profile are they all running? it seems like anyone running wide setups are running pretty low profile tires...

i don't know why i can't find any info on this... i have been googling every permutation of this that i can, but can't find anything conclusive.

265/40R18 is too large of a OD in front...you'll rub the wheel well liner.

If I wanted to run 275-40-18 rears what front should I run?

Or if I'm running 285-35-18 rears what front should I run?

I too have been searching endlessly for this info.
