On what wheels?

45 will likely cause rubbing, especially if you're lowered even slightly.
255 will fit fine on the back (assuming stock wheels?) but I wouldn't go that wide in the front. Might want to ask this in the wheel and tire forum to get more help.

The most popular tire sizes for 19s are 265/30 rear and 235/35 front. But it depends on the wheels you're putting them on, of course.

+1

Thats what I originally had on my 19s miro type 111 forgot the offset. I went with 275 when I had to replace the rear and I get slight rubbing when I hit a huge dip with someone in the back. By myself or with a passenger theres no rubbing at all.

even if you get it to not rub, the super thick tire will look dumb on the car.

hey what did you put? i am thinking to put 225 45 front and 255 45 back. i dont care about look i care about comfort and the fact that they rather bounce then slash over small potholes. my only concern is rubbing, not look not speedo
