Personally I'd get 18" aftermarket wheels and fit 245/45/18 tires on there, roughly .24 variation from OEM which is 225/55/17 on trims without the 19" wheels.
Totally agree.
When I do get around to getting a new set of wheels I'm going to 245/45-18s as I can get a wheel package that reduces weight by more than 10lbs per wheel (based on my research, for our diameter, an 18" rim is optimal for reducing weight, planning on TrakLites with summer tires). Also a little more sidewall will be good not only for rough roads, but also for traction in inclement weather (I'm on 19" stock wheels currently).
