I think an even bigger issue will be the backspacing - I'd be very surprised if the wheel/tire doesn't interfere with the front strut.

Also, won't a 265 tire be too stretched on an 11" wide wheel?

I know that's what I'm afraid of. But I have a set of front tires in that size and I wanted to run 19x11 all the way around

Why not run 19"x10" F & R? I know with stock and certain aftermarket suspensions a 10" et27 will work on the F with basically stock camber. Anything more aggressive and you'll need to add camber. Plus a 265 or 275 will fit nicely on a 10" wide wheel. For the tire width you want to run there is no advantage to going with an 11" wide wheel.

+1, asking for way too much headache trying to get 11 to work in the front.

Sorry didn't know why my phone did that. I think your right. Trying to fit an 11 will be more of a headache. Do you think a 10.5 on a 265 will be any easier. My fronts now are a 19x10 on 265/30/19 and I have zero rubbing!

I guess our phones aren't as "smart" as they're supposed to be

With a 265 there really is no need to increase the width of the rim to 10.5".

Are you trying to keep a square wheel setup but increase the width of the rear tire (staggered tire setup)? It seems like your current 10" setup is fine and, if you wanted, you could increase the tire width to a 275 F and even a 285 on the R.

Right now my wheels are 19x10 and 19x11 VMR V710s and I want to change my wheels but keep my same tires and I'm having a hard time finding a wheel in those specs so I'm trying to figure out what other size wheels will fit those tires

A 265 will fit on a 9.5" wide wheel. What size rear tire are you using? Depending on the rear tire size you might be able to go with a 9.5" F & 10.5" R setup.

Have you narrowed down the search for your 2nd set of wheels? Any of them a truly custom wheel where you can control width and offset?

If your 1st wheel setup is using a 265 F and a 295 R tire then you could go with a 9.5" F and a 10.5" R wheel for your 2nd setup and still use the same tire widths.

This is the perfect square set-up IMO. Also it's another reason why I say 19x10 all around is the way to go. Just upgrade the tire size to 275/30/19 all around and if you want the aggressive look in the back then just add a 5mm spacer. (I'm pretty sure that's what Bart did).
