I'm gonna be picking up some new wheels here soon and I was gonna run 235/35/19 fronts and 265/30/19 rears. Fronts would be 19x9.5 et33 and rears 19x10 et25. Thought that this set up would be fine. Should I run 275/30 in the rear instead???

Put on the 275s in the rear, they are on a 19x10 wheel. Magically everything was fine. Now my conundrum is the new wheels out back are 10.5. Now I could go to a 275 but wouldn't it still be a bit stretched and cause another disruption in the rolling diameter? I know this is tire dependent (I run conti dws). Or could I go 245/35/19 f 285/30/10?.
