Then get the OEM 19's.

Here's why...

a) OEM 19's look 10x better than the OEM 18's

b) OEM 19's are stronger (forged)

c) OEM 19's have a better used resale value (short term and long term)


As for tires...

255/35/19 tire on the front 19 x 8.5 wheel is about as wide as you want to go

and

275/30/19 tire on the rear 19 x 9.5 wheel is pretty much maxed out as well.

Some crazy guys have gone further, but you don't want to get too far away from the ideal tire/wheel fitment.
