what rim diameter. 18 or 19?

275/30 should be ok with 19 but 235/30 offers no rim protection.

There is no such tire with a 235/30/19 size configuration. 35 profile is the thinnest at that size.

235/35/19 maybe?

That will be fine. However, you can probably bump the front tires up to a 245. It'll be more proportional and the ideal size, but just because you have a 235/275 combo, doesn't mean you're suddenly going to under steer like mad. That size will be fine if you can't find 245s.

Agreed. Most people would typically go with 235 front and 265 rear or 245 front and 275 rear. There are a few people that are running/or ran 235 front and 275 rear though so it's fine. It's just recommended that the wheels and tires are kept within the OEM dimensions.
