Which tire setup should I go with (Conti DW's):

1) 235/35/19 front and 265/30/19 rear with a -3 rolling diameter difference
2) 225/40/19 front and 255/35/19 rear with a 0 rolling diameter difference

Ideally the 0 rolling diameter would be better for the transfer case, but would the smaller width tires look stretched on 8" and 9" wheels?

(Yes I know this is a tire topic, but I wanted to post here to get input from the XI/X Drive group!)
sorry for the late reply. what did you end up choosing? i'm at the same fork in the road as you were, but ride comfort is at a premium these days with the 19s...
