Then why not try 275/30s at the front, since they are OK diameter wise, don't know if there is enough space in terms of width of the tire but since they are like a good fit for 9 inch wide wheels too (stocks are 9 inch) it is probable that there won't be an issue. 275/30 has 25.6 inch diameter vs. 25.8 stock size. Since your rears will be 295/30, this could be a good combo, at least on paper.

Here what I read from tire rack site about the PSS specs, just the essential data, for the rest go for

Here you go:

Stock tires vs. what fits nearest:

245/35 19:
93 Y
23lbs. each
8-9.5 inch rim range
25.8 inch overall diameter
807 revs per mile
275/30 19:
96 Y
26lbs. each
9-10 inch rim range
25.6 inch overall diameter
814 revs per mile

265/35 19:
98 Y
25lbs. each
9-10.5 inch rim range
26.3 inch overall diameter
790 revs per mile
295/30 19:
100 Y
28lbs. each
10-11 inch rim range
26 inch overall diameter
799 revs per mile

Hope this helps.
