Tires for my OEM 359's

Ok.. Just got me a set of the OEM 359's from iSCRAPE and trying to decide on brand/size of tires I will need to get.. I was thinking 235/35/19 up front and probably 265/30/19 rear.. What tire would give me more clearance with not a huge roll of the rear fenders?? Thanks!

Good choice for being able to get you from point A to point B, but definitely not high performance tires by any standard.

If performance is a priority, look into something in the "Extreme Performance Summer" or "Max Performance Summer" categories.
