Im trying to see what a 275 or even 265 would look like on the front 9" wheels or any aftermarket 9" width wheels. Pictures are greatly appreciated.

I've got the stock rears mounted up front with spacers. If you search a couple of my recent posts you'll see pictures. My front rims were widened out to 19x11 and now roll on the rear.

I have 9.5" track wheels(all 4) and run a 275 Hankook track tire on that wheel. No rub, and that's on some pretty good cornering...

Here is a picture of Rule12b's car (hope you dont mind, your car just looks so good!) sporting the aforementioned 9.5" front with a 285.

Here is a picture of the BOR CTS-V Sedan on a 9.5" front and a 295 tire on it. This car is sitting on our competition springs and is raced at this height, no rub!

Here is The Legionnaire CTS-V Coupe on a 9.5" wide rim with a 295 tire on it. Note that this one is lowered on coilovers and we race at this height, no rub!

can i run a 285 35 19 in the front on the 9" without any problems?
and a 305 30 19 on the 10"

Technically you would want to run a 9.5" on a 285 tire. It would push past what most manufacturers would want to see as a minimum # for the width. Are these track tires or street tires?

We run a 9.5" front with a 295 without issues. The rear is a 10" on a 305 tire.

No rub, no problems.

and a 305 30 19 on the 10"I wouldn't do 285 on a 9" rim. Maybe a 265...

Not ideal, but yes, it will work fine.
