19 inch tire choices? Thoughts on the below?

I'm looking at 235/35 frt and 265/30 rears....

Any thoughts on the following tires for mostly city summer driving? I rather not spend a ton.
1-BFG g-force T/A kdw2.......28lbs each...heavy suckers..
2- General Exclaim UHP ....cheap and vert light, but the 265 rears are narrow for 265...closer to a standard 255
3- Kumho Ecsta SPT....

Any input is greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

3) Kumho I think one member have recomended these for me, the continentals that I've got have a long wayfor them to be changed. Go for the 265's.

#1----With the flame tread they are a noisy tire but great grip
#2---- long life tire, weaker sidewall
#3---- decent tire moderate grip

I loved the look of the BFG and wanted to get those but after reading through a few prior posts I ordered the Kumho yesterday....I hope they dont suck.
