9" wheel + tire sizing question

Guys, quick question. What's the max tire size I can safely fit on a 9" wheel?

I'm thinking about doing 275/30/19 in the future... just want to see if it's possible.


Let's say you're running a really high performance tire like an AD08 or RE-11 and a regular performance tire like an Exclaim UHP.

Both are 245f/295r in size.

Would the AD08/RE-11 have less understeer than the UHP just because it's a more grippy tire? Or does understeer/oversteer only affected on sizing.
