more tire ques for 19's

ordered some VMR wheels 710's, 8.5 front et 35 and 10 rear et 38.

Why 235/35/19 front, isnt stock 225 with the same width rim?

Will 265/35/19 fit in the rear Id like a little more rubber between my wheels and the road than the suggested 265/30/19.

I do have the m-sport yellow springs and shocks. I dont see any change in ride hight so I wouldnt say its lowered but yes to modified.

Thanks Brian

The 225 up front will be slightly stretched on a 19x8.5 width. The proper size for your setup is a 235/35/19 up front and a 265/30/19 in the rear. You may be able to run a tire with a taller profile, but you will have to go down in tire width to prevent rubbing issues.

I think that is the same thing the reps from Firestone said a couple of years ago.
