if you go square you should probably go with 19x8.5 otherwise there will be some tire stretch (assuming you will be using 225/35/19 or 235/35/19).

So 19x9.5 Is Possible? I Just Need A Little Stretch? Would A 9.5 Ruin My Transfer Case Though? Thanks For The Reply.

square set up will not ruin your transfer case since the rolling diameter is the same at all 4 corners. The transfer case is only impacted when you run different tires or staggered setups that result in greater than 1% difference in rolling diameter.

With that said, you can safely run 19x9.5 with stretched tires assuming offsets are appropriate. Fender rub may be an issue depending on offset and tire

I think 9.5 is really pushing it for the fronts, also for snow its better to have narrower tires. Just food for thought.

Personally if I went square id do 8.5's

Garage List
9.5 seems very wide up front. The widest I've seen people run upfront is a 9 with a 245 tire. (This doesn't mean that 9.5 won't fit, I'm just not sure since I haven't heard or anyone doing it.) Also, you're going to have a lot of tire stretch since you won't be able to run a 275 tire. Is there anyone near you that has that a 9.5 wheel you can test fit?

There are plenty of members that have 9.5 in the rear, just find one that would move it to the front and see what the fitment looks like, and then take a picture.

Not to thread hijack, but everyone's mentioning either 8.5 or 9.5, what about a 9" square setup? Anyone running that? If the stretch required for that setup would be minimal, that may be the way to go, given the right offsets.
