19x8.5 front
19x10 rear

Besides all the other issues like the stretch look and the rubbing issue.
Is it always the wider the better because wider tires give you more traction? (I heard wider tires will cost more understeer on the track...)

So please help.
What's the best tire size on the 19's perhaps on the track or auto cross racing?

You're asking for trouble with those sizes. Go with an 8.5" and a 9.5" rim... no more. Front should be 245/35 and the rear should be 275/30.

As for best performance tire to use... best in class, by any measure, Bridgestone RE-01R.

You'll find lots of photos of my car running with those specifications on the track... they'll all over this forum.
