Which 19" rims on e53?

Hey folks,

I'm close to buying a 2006 4.4 e53 and would like to do a non-staggered 19" rim setup...I don't want to put 20" as I'd like to keep some comfort with the ride, but don't want to compromise on the looks either, hence I'm looking for existing options and pics if possible for a 19" config...

I like the 177 style rims and was wondering if anyone has them installed in a non-staggered config for F+R. If yes, which ones did you use: 9x19 or 10x19?...I was thinking of the following setup : 177 style with 285/45/19 tires

Any pics would be greatly appreciated.

Thx

PS.
1. Any 19" non-OEM replicas worth looking into?
2. If I put 285/50/19 instead of 285/45/19, according to this Tire Size Calculator, the spedometer reading would be by 4% slower...can the reading be corrected via programming?

if your going to go no staggered stay away from 19" go with a set of 20" ride difference is barely noticeable 19" not a very popular tire size so it comes with a high price 20" are much better price and in a non staggered setup will be more economical

so you're saying either 18" or 20"...what's the widest tire size & highest aspect ration combo that I can go with a 20" wheel for both F+R without having the tire touch the body? Thx

in the 20's you can go as wide as 325 45 20 but be prepared to hold on tight to the steering as you will feel every rut in the road and if on highway stay out of the truck lanes. make sure you get rims with the right width and offset so they tuck nicely in the wheel well
