    19" are okay to fit so long as you have the right et (I'd say et42-45 would be ideal) and don't mind going with 235/35/19 or 245/30/19 rubber on them.
    Mine are 19" M6 reps et38 with 235/35/19 and they fit my loon with no arch mods and I've got coilovers on, and can drop the rear another 20mm without rubbing if I want.

    As for general styling, if you want to go slightly different, why not try Schnitzer or Alpina, both are pretty rare sights compared to the Mtec and can both look extremely good with the right set of wheels

    Let us know what you end up choosing mate
