19" with a higher profile will struggle to fit depending on the car..eg stock struts or coilovers and they will be very expensive. You may need to get your guards rolled as well. Someone else will like the look of them as well so they will be easy to sell. It will also be difficult to find someone with 19" high profile who are willing to let you have a test fit.. We have 18s on one of our daughters bugeye and the really suit the car so we have continues with 18s when it needed tyres but our GC8 sti that came with 18s has had them replaced with 17s because it does a lot of "spirited" driving on less than perfect mountain roads. You wont have to hit a pot hole very hard going fast with 19s to find it disintegrate and damage the wheel although that will be the least of your problems if you are on a windy mountain road..
