Question REAR TIRES ? for 18 by 10

just bought 18 by 10 fr500 for rear on 2000 mustang gt conv,

i already lowered the stang 2in with H & R

my front tires are 275 /40 18 and they are too tall so i ordered

265/35/18 for the front

my question is what is the biggest tire i can fit

i currently put 295/30/18 on the 18 by 10 but now i have a gap in the rear like i never lowered the car

im thinking
295/35 or 305/35

i heard 315 is best on a 10.5 rim

thanks in advance

295 at the smallest.

35 is the the lowest profile I would go.

Each brand is slightly different. Look at the diameter companise list to get a good ida about how big the actual tire is.
