Help- New Tires and Sizes for my 19" Wheels

I am in the market for new tires and was looking at something with high treadwear rating and cheap. I have falkons and i am not impressed. Both rear tires on my GSP9700 roadforce machine measure of over 80lbs and are no longer round, fronts are 40s and matching doesnt help. So new tires it is, and these are not even worn out.
So
I was looking at these dunlops because they are rated at 460. This is my wifes daily driver so i dont need some performance tire.

Main question is, can i up the aspect ratio even more without rubbing. I would like to get a little more sidewall.

Current sizes
Fronts: 225/35-19
Rear: 265/30-19


Tire rack calls for 255 in the rear, so i already know these 265s will fit, i could not do 255s because the wheels are to wide, i feel the current sizes on the front and rear are stretched! See pics

Ok, mine are 10s also and the rims stick out and the tires are stretched, who makes your tires? Mine are falcons, you can see how they dont fit the rim correctly

I don't think the problem is the tires. It's the offset of the rims. Did they come off another car?

No they did not, its not the offset because i am not talking about how the tires fit in the wheel wells, i am talking about how the tires fit on the rim, this doesnt have anything to do with the offset. Its a function on tire size and rim width. I have even seen that you are not supposed to mount 255s to a 10" rim, hence why i went to 265s and they are still stretched

Garage List
It's a pain that tire sizes vary so much from manufacturers. But I guess clothes, etc do the same thing. Falkens, Toyos, Nittos generally run the smallest IMO. Michelin PSS's fill out the rim nicely. An R rated tire will be much wider. You can often look up tread widths, but even when you do that the sidewall profile can still make a big difference. Good luck.
