19" 265 and 295 Hoosier R6's Fitment?

Just wondering if anyone has run a 265/35/19 front and 295/30/19 Hoosier R6 lowered and run into fitment/rubbing issues?

Or should I run a 235/35/19 front and 265/35/19 rear just to be safe?

Any recommendations on where to order from online or in the SoCal area?

19" because of 380mm big brake kit.

Have you thought about getting some really wide 18 inch ARC-8's? They clear most BBKs.

I dont have much experience with track tires but the sizes would depend on a few things:
-The type of racing you're doing. Drag? AutoX? endurance? or just having fun on on a track day
-Your Experince lever would play a BIG role
-The power your car makes

I cant really recommend tire sizes but there are many people on this forum who would know alot more

I probably won't bother right now anyways...unfortunately the nearest track to my place in Canada is like 600miles away or something stupid and having these track tires just sit after one event isn't going to work for 1700 bones shipped and heat cycled.
