Default Question on tire size 2010 GT 500 rims

Hi,

Found a buyer selling 2010 GT 500 rims with 9.5" width all around. I believe the original tire sizes that come with these rims are:

F - 255 40 19
R - 285 35 19

The seller instead have these tires listed:
F - 255 45 19
R - 285 40 19

Would there be any odometer or any other issues with the above sizes in comparison to my current 19" factory option wheels that come with 245 45 19?

What would be the best recommended sizes with these GT500 factory rims for my 2012 GT? Original size tires that come with the GT500 rims? Doing a comparo calculation, it seems the 255/45 and 285/40 would be closest to my factory 19"'s. Just a lot less tire selection at these size.

Thanks for helping a newbie out.

Thanks! Turned out the seller listed the sizes wrong. The wheels come with the stock sizes for 2010 GT500 19" all around. I'll stick to these stock sizes.
