Arrow Is 275/30/19 rear a better choice than 265/30/19?

In terms of rolling difference from the front 235/35/19, 275/30/19 is only 0.02in longer, compared to 265/30/19 which is 0.217 inch shorter. Although either choice doesn't exceed the 1% max diff, 275/30/19 seems to be a better choice. Unless there are other issues such as wheel fitment, etc. I did see some chose the wider one in the back. Please chime in.
