staggered sizes on stock 230s (winter tires)

I am looking for a replacement rear (currently running 235/35/19s all the way around) because i had a rear get damaged. I'm having a hard time finding a blizzak lm-60 to replaced the damaged one due to it being discontinued. I have found some 255/40/19s and some 245/45/19s but im not sure if these will work with the 235/35/19s on the front? Anybody know? Thanks.

Those are much bigger than the front, wouldn't go with any of those sizes.

You mean because of the aspect ratio? I already have 235/35 & 265/30 on my summer set up. Do you think the 40 or 45 will rub in the back or fuck with the TC? I also found some 265/35 rear blizzaks so i might go with those.

Yes, the tires will be too tall. Even 265/35/19 are taller, but I've seen that size on e9x.

Thanks. I think i am gonna go with the 265/35 in the rear since i cant find 30s anywhere. They should fit on the stock 9" wide rear wheels.
