Tire size question

Okay on a 19x9 and 19x10 is running a 235 35 in the front and 265 30 in the rear to small for an M? I'm thinking the rears yes but the for fronts is that okay?

Run 245 in the front. Whats your reasoning for running 235?
I think the stock rim is 8.5 wide in the front so even 255/275 is a better option for those rims.

The Comp package comes with 19x9 and 19x10 wheels with 245/265 tires. Either stick with the OEM 245/265 sizes or try 255/275 or 255/285 sizes.

I switched from OEM Michellin PS2 245/35/19 & 265/35/19 to Michellin Pilot Super Sport 255/35/19 & 275/35/19 with no problems at all. Better handling, better grip, more safe for the rim and best of all A Better price on this Michellin being better than the PS2.
