Tire size for 19x8.5 and 19x9.5 wheels?

I recently purchased some Aodhan Aff7 Wheels (F-19x8.5, R-19X9.5 ET35)

I need to know what size tire to use on these so that the diameter stays similar on the front and rear (based on tiresize.com/calculator).

Would running 225/40 with 255/35 make it stretched because if so I don't want that.

Would running 245/40 with 275/35 be too large for the wheels and make it look weird?

I would love to run 235/40 with 265/35, but I want to purchase some Firestone Firehawk Indy 500's and they don't make a 235/40r19 for whatever reason. I've also heard that these tires run a little bigger on the wheel than normal tires so maybe 225/40 and 255/35 won't be stretched, but I am not sure.

I would go for continental extreme contact 235/40 and 265/35. They are some of the lightest and best handling tires and they are cheaper than Michelins.

I ran 245/40/19 and 275/35/19 indy500s on my Apex wheels (8.5/9.5 setup) on my old 340, and I had no issues.

What offset are you running? Been wanting to get wheels for my 328 but don't know what exact specs to go for. Also do you have any rubbing issues with your current set up?

Offsets of the wheels are 35 rear and front and I have 12 mm spacers in the front.

0 rubbing issues
