Wheels size

Im looking for a new set of wheels and tires for my 11GT instead of base 18's.
Im shooting for the 19 inch rims, the question is which should i buy?:
1. 19x9 all four wheels (275 all around)?
2. 19x9 front and 19x10 back? (285/35/19 rear and 255/40/19 front) BOSS setup

With taking into consideration, i dont rotate my tires, so staggered isnt a problem.
My car is already dropped 1in all around.

No brainier if you don't care about rotating...
19x9 front and 19x10 back.

19x9 and 19x10's is a good setup, and if you don't want to rotate, then you would have no problem running that

18x10 all around. Nothing screams performance like lightweight wheels with fat rubber at each corner.

When the car is dropped even with an inch, it needs bigger wheels and tires because when you look at the whole thing, it seems that the wheels are stuffed under the fenders.
Do you guys think lighter wheels will make a difference on a DD? I dont think so.

Whatever floats your boat. I wouldn't do a 285/35/19, though. I like the wheels/tires in the back to be taller than the front. It isn't much of a difference when using math...but when looking at certain brands...they can differ by 1/4 inch or more.

In that regard, I would just do a 275/40/19 in the rear.
