Sure - you nailed it. 19" x 8.5" with a 45 offset. Comes right to the edge of the fenders, looks good. Tires are 235/35/19. The dealer swore they would rub (as internal spec says 225 max apparently) but they don't.

What rubber make and model? One makers 235/35 sidewall is anothers 225/35.

Can you snap a few pics of the innner wheel edge and the suspension arm? Looking at clearance for maybe pushing to a 9 wide on the rear and moving offset to +40 (a little more poke than you).

Also, ride likes dope!! Well done.

If you're still interested, rubber is Antares Ingens A1 235/35/19. They're a cheap directional tire. Have barely used them yet as I only have time to have them on for 2 or 3 months a year. So have no real opinion on them yet. Probably put them on again in late Mar upcoming.

Like the white stripes. Do they stop in the middle of the hood as it appears in the photo? Paint , wrap or decal? if the latter, what is the source?

Thanks. Yeah, didn't like the look of the stripes in Photoshop when I put them the full length. So I did something a bit unusual, taking inspiration from a Camaro model. It's vinyl, I used Oracal 970RA-945 Gloss Crystal White - which has a lot of sparkle that you can't appreciate in photos. The blacks are both Vvivid - Gloss Black base and Satin Chrome matte stripes. Personally, I really like how it turned out - but it won't be to everybodys liking, that's for sure.
