what suspension are you on?

235/35/19 is fine in the front, but why such a conservative/typical +35 offset when your rears are a decent +22? I'd throw on a 10mm spacer and then run 225/35/19s.

rear tires sort of depend on how low you are, but a 245/35/19 in the rear will be aight if you're dropped low and have a fender roll. if you're stock sport suspension and fenders, you can throw on 265/30 or 255/35 but you'll rub on dips.
