225 front and 265 back

Do you see any possible issues in running 225 front and 265 back on 19? I just would like some more traction back but keep OEM front. Please advise.
Thanks

You would create more understeer with this set up but if that isn't an issue for you then go for it..

235/275's a good combo for a sedan. Which widths and offsets are you currently running?

My coupe OEM wheels are 225/30/19 and 255/35/19 one the 5 star spoke oem wheels (197 i think) . was supposed to get 235 front but i had to wait too long since they were not in stock so i got 225 front and 265 back. the 265 look pretty squared now mounted.

If the car runs great, you should keep it! Once they wear out, throw some 235 fronts on there and it should give you some additional grip and beefier look.

if you're on stock rims, i think a 265 is out of spec, the stock rim is too narrow.

what kinda tires did you put on the rear?
