Tire Stretching

Anyone here knowledgeable on this subject? My rims are 9.5x19' Front, and 10x19' Rear. I believe normal fitment would be 245/35/19 Front. And 275/30/19 Rear. What fitment is considered stretched?

In not sure about the front but 275 on the 10" rear wheel IMO is perfect. No stretch at all. But that might not be what you are looking for

245 on a 9.5 is JUST** stretched. It's a nice angle for a fender to overlay w some (not excessive) camber.

275 on 10,10.5 or 11 works. The disclaimer is that the 11" with 275 will be about the same as the 245 on the 9.5...very close. If you want an aggressive but not stanced look, that'll work.
