Tire Size Help!

Hey boys ordered new wheels, and they just arrived. The sizing is 19x10 et25 in front and 19x11 et25 in the rear. I went through 40+ pages on the forums and talked to people on Facebook car groups. But I feel slightly more confused. So I typically like to use 35 profile tires due to the extra tire to help against crap roads. I just want to know my options. The wheel company said 265/30/19F and 295/30/19R. I want to know sizes that will work for the Ventus and the Michelin PS4S. Iím like to be 100% before committing, hate exchanging tires haha.

In my mind 265/35/19F and 305/30/19R Ventus should be plenty of tire. Or Michelin 265/30/19F and 295/30/19R. Or let me know what you think.

265/35 or 275/30 should do the trick. the 275/30 should have decent sidewall since its a percentage of the width.
your lowering springs probably bring you to about zcp height, so you should be ok with those sizes up front. 305's are probably close. 295/30's should be safe.

265/30 or 275/30 front

295/30/19 rear. 305 will most likely rub although the Hankook tires you are considering run very narrow. 4S has a rounded shoulder but a 305 would still be a tight fit. 4S lasts for a long time and is a fantastic street tire.

Sidewall height is a ratio of the width. A 265/35 and a 295/30 have almost the same sidewall height.

Thanks a lot for the information! The reason why I was asking was because I have 19x10F and 19x11R on my F80 M3 and I love the girth with the 265/35/19 and 305/30/19. Was wondering if I could do the same with a thinner tire like the Ventus. But if I go narrower I was wondering if I could go a little meatier due to our roads. If not the 275/30/19F and 295/30/19R should be just as good! Also Iím worried because I had a 295/35/19 on a 11Ē and it looked slightly stretched. So I figure this would look even more stretched. Hope this makes sense
