Question ► OEM 220 19" Rear Winter Tire Size 265/35 Or 275/35 ?

with a 255/35/19 front tire on oem 220 rim, what would be the best rear size for winter tires 265/35 or 275/35?

You are probably not going to notice much different between the two. But in theory, the 275 may be slightly better since it will mirror the 20 cm front to back difference the car was designed for and the 265 may be slightly better in the snow since it will sink in better.

I bought blizzak lm 60s in 255/35 and 275/35 based on tire rack's recommendation for the 220s. Just had them mounted/balanced today but won't know if they rub till late November when I install them. I didnt have the tpms installed and in retrospect maybe should have done it.
