Question Switching Tire Sizes

I have stock rims which i love. They are "19x8-5-Aluminum-Alloy-Machined-and-Black-10-Spoke-10032-Wheel-Rim]" to be exact and i need to get new tires soon and i currently have 255/40/19 tires on all of my wheels now. I was thinking of keeping that same size tires in the front, but making the rear tires 265/35/19. Any suggestions if i should go slightly bigger in the back or should i keep them all the same size. Pros and Cons please!!!!

Well right off the top of my head one of the cons would be the inability to rotate the tires. I have an '09 Z06 at it sucks that I can't rotate the tires, heck I can't even swap them from one side to the other because they are directional. I'd have to remove the tire from the rim and remount it in the opposite rotating direction.
