I would run a 265 width on the front at at least a 285 on the rear, as far as sidewall size I'd find a tire calculator and see what size sidewall would put you closest to stock for speedometer purposes.

I would do a 265 on an 8.5 wide tire, if a 255/35 works then a 265/35 is just fine as well.

A 255 on an 8 wide gives some rim lip protection so a 265 on an 8.5 wide will help as well, you dont want to curb those nice wheels do you? Plus you always want a nice flat sidewall on your rim or it looks all stretched and bad.

If it is your everyday driver go with a 255/35.This way you can rotate them out.Also,with a 255/35 it will not affect the speedo.With what u gain in rim you will lose in rubber so it actually comes out the same so no speedo troubles.
