I'm sure you must be aware that the tires are of different width and diameters as well.
Fronts: 255/40/R19 x 9"
Rears: 275/40/R19 x 9.5"
In addition to the 20 mm difference in the width, there's an approx. difference of 5/8" in diameter.
I personally would not
go wider than 255 on the front.
Would also compare offsets and setback, just for the hell of it.
Hopefully some more knowledgeable people will chime in on this.
Oh! I assume your buddy wants to do the swap to allow him more flexibility in rotating the tires.
