Fronts 225/40 which is the oem size
Can also use 235/40 in the front and 265/35 19's

The front should have always have a higher profile then the rear in a staggered fitment setup

okay cool just need to find the right balance now as i could not find the semis in 255/30r19. so went for 255/35r19. means i need to go for 225/40r19

Yip, you need to try keep the overall diameter the same.
The 255/35 will have sidewall height of 89.25mm (35% of 255)
The 225/40 will have a sidewall height of 90mm (40% of 225)

If just using for drags, I don't think the size of the fronts should matter to much, but the rear overall wheel diameter and width would effect things the most.

Is your car lowered? the higher/taller profile could cause your arches to rub

Yes my car is dropped. So will need to go with a lower profile

What tyres you planning on getting? I recently got Michelin Pilot Super Sport. Been happy with them, ride allot nicer than the rft Bridgestone s001 I had
