Wheel - tire size question

hi,

I have 313 wheels and I want to drop RFT for regular tires - Pilot sport's. Original tire size is 225/35/19 but I want to put 235/35/19 for the front and 255/30/19 but I want to put 265/30/19 for the back. Is it ok to put a little wider tires than original ones?

I also would not mind to go with a little higher tire sidewalls like M3 for extra comfort.

thanks

Will I be able to fit bigger, say 245/35/19 for the front and 275/30/19 for the back on original 19" 313M wheels (225/35/19 front, 255/30/19 back)

Thanks
