front tire size question

I'm a noob when it comes to tires. I had a set of Forged-1 Eight wheels made and am buying tires for them. I can go with either 255/35/19 or 265/30/19 for front.

Which one would be better for me? I do not track the car.

I would start by saying get a more reputable brand of wheel like HRE, Volk, Advan, BBS... Secondly I would say that it's true that both of those sizes would work but it's hard to give sizing advice without the wheel width and offset.

19x9 fronts. Not sure on offset other than I was told they would fit flush without spacers.

Probably 255. 265 should really have a 9.5".
