Yeah, it seems 19" tires are hard to find... I really wanted to stay away from 20s... for performance sake. But 19's with 35 profile tires are too small and won't fill the fender gap LOL. Just a mess, im still doing more research though.

OZ were one of my options before, but they only offer 20", so I left that plan to dust lol.
Here you go. Don't go crazy looking at all the options! Also, take a look at the sticky in the Wheels/Tires section to get the diameter of the different tire sizes.

If you are trying to go for weight loss, going bigger isn't necessarily bad. Tires often weigh more than what the wheels are made out of. So, going to 20 in. may increase wheel weight but the reduction in tire weight may be more than enough to offset that increase. On the other hand, if you are trying to reduce overall diameter so you can effectively improve your gear ration, then going lower profile tires on smaller smaller wheels is the way to go.
