widest rear tires on 19/9 wheels?

I'm sure this has been asked before but what is the widest tire size recommended for a 19 by 9 rear wheel? I have the brembo brake package and would like to keep the 255s in front but go wider in the rear while keeping the stock wheels. Thinking 275s would be fine but any problems with 285s?

275's are what most run. It's the widest recommended on the stock brembo rim.

I have 275/40/19 on the rear, it is a little higher which fills the wheel well. the 285/35 fits just fine and even though the tire is rated for a 9.5 rim many run that. the only issue the tire is lower profile and IMO look a little small from the side. the 275 is perfect IMO

look up the tires you are considering on the manufacturer's web site or on TireRack, and see what they recommend for wheel width, and stick with that

i'm pretty sure that 275 is pushing it on 9" wheels
