need advice - will 235 35 19 fronts work properly?

i've got a flat front tire from running over the debris of an accident that occurred just ahead of me last week. crap..

within a year i plan to buy proper wheels and tires, but to hold me over until then, i have 2 options, can't decide what to do:

1. replace the 2 fronts with proper tires (about $600 or $700)
2. get a set of 4 wheels with new tires off my buddy

problem is that the wheels are 235 35 19 fronts and that doesn't match the OEM specifications. i can get spacers but i'm worried about the driving dynamics changing.

the rears are 265 35 19 so the offset will still exist..

any suggestions from someone running 235 fronts? i drive on the road only, no track at all..

Lots of us run 235/35/19 up front in our winter setups. Fits fine as long as your wheel offsets are suitable.

This is a similar question I have in another post. Will 235/35/19 tires fit up front without spacers? Not sure about the ET but the wheels are 19x8.
