Default Rear tire size

I thought I had read hear that some crossfire owners had put 285/35/19 tires in the rear without any issues. Can anybody confirm or deny this.
Thank you for your input.

Mike

Yes, that will fit o.k. Stock rear tire height is 26". I'm slightly lowered and wanted to stay closer to the stock diameter, so went with 285/30 (25.8").

Something wrong here?
Edit
Sorry, I went the wrong way on my ratio.

Lots of numbers there! Maybe I missed it but, was there any mention about keeping the original front and rear rims, and putting on a higher side wall to soften up the ride a bit? I wouldn't want to exceed the 26" tall original height for fear of messing up the speedometer. Any opinions? Well, maybe just a little taller wouldn't mess up the speedo too much as long as it would improve the ride comfort. Or, are shocks and springs the way to go when NOT pursuing any type of racing?

265/35-19 ,,,,275/35-19,,,,285/35-19 all have a slightly higher rim to grown and give a slightly softer ride and if i remember the speedO is only off 3 to 400 rpm the 285 is 26.9 tall just don't go over 27" without centering the rear wheels, and u will need adjustable rear suspension on all the rear links.
you can keep the front and the rear factory rims.

I have 285/35r19 on mine, but I have aftermarket trims that are much wider, you do not want to try and put a run flat tire on stock wheels they ate to narrow and could have problem sealing.
Alot of tires go upto a 275 and the 9" rim is on the bottom of the recommended width.
There are acouple 285's that can fit on stock wheels, once you pick out the tire you want check that manufacturers site and see if that tire is in the recommended range.

I went with wider wheels for several reasons, and did not want the 9" wheel
