tires??

im looking to put tires on a set of wheels, i have a set of 19x10 for the rear and 19x8 for the front. Now the real question, whats the smalles tire i can put on the 19x10 rim??? i know a 265-30-19 is a good size but can i go 255-35-19??? I want the tire to look streched on thee so it will tuck with little rubbing issues. thanks

P.S. i want the front tires to look the same so it maches..

I never understood this... buy wide wheels, and then put too skinny of tires on them. Why not just buy 19x8 all around (4 corners) and put a 235 on them? It would look the same from the rear. The smallers I would go on a 10" is a 255/30r19. 245/30r19 would be really pushing it, because the bead needs to seat.

if you put the 235 on a 10", it will not be as wide as a 255 on a 10, because there is only so much tire to strech. Try a 225/35r19 front, 255/30r19 rear and you should be okay. But I would recommend checking the offsets for the rear. If that 19x10 is any lower than a 40mm offset, it will not work on a non-M.
