Thanks!
Tire manufacturers recommend the 255/35R19 to fit from 8.5"-10". So yes, it fits, there is no safety hazard, and the tire will perform as intended by the manufacturer.

It definitely will look a bit stretched (not like VW tuner stretched, but the tire is about 10" wide in it's normal state, and the wheel is 10" wide at the bead seat, and more like 11" wide flange to flange.
