Default Good stretch brands

I'm getting my coils/wheels put on my SC next week and am looking for a good tire to stretch. Been told the Nexxens work well, along with some Coopers (?). I expect plenty of wear from camber, so I'm not trying to ball out on rubber that will be replaced often

19X8.5 thinking 225/35
19X9.5 245/35

Any input on some good, already rounded tires that will stretch well?

Check out I'd consider 215/35 and 235/35 for a moderate stretch on those wheel widths.

Check out Federal ss595, falken 912 and 452's, nankang nsII, toyo proxes 4 and t1r, which all stretch well. All those are affordable with exception to the toyo's, which will cost a good double of the rest.
as far as grip, the t1r's will probably top the list followed by proxes4 and then federals or 452s. I'm running 225/45 on my 17x10 wheels, but they're federals so they run a bit wide, probably equivalent to 235 for other brands.

^^^ Yessur, those should give u the mild stretch u want, im running 225/35/20 on 10.5'' wide rims with a -5.2 camber in the rear with this no name brand called "ACHILLES", been riding on them for over 6 going on 7months and man those are good, still waiting for camber wear to flip them
