225/35/19 or 235/35/19???

Hey fellas, I've got a staggered setup of 19x8.5 up front and 19x9.5 rear. Currently have 235/35 front (offset 35) and 255/30 (offset 40) rear, all Pirellis if that matters. Thinking about going with 225/35 up front cuz the rears seem to have more of a streched look than the front and it looks a little off with my current setup. So would 225/35 be the ideal combo for this setup? Thx in advance for yall's feedback.

Either one works, but the 235/35 is closer to the OEM rolling diameter than the 225/35 would be. If you're looking for an equal stretch then go with the 225/35.
