I'm going to guess and say you will be hard pressed to find a suitable sized winter tire that fits those wide wheels and even if you do they will cost a small fortune. You would be better served with a dedicated wheel/tire combo that is much narrower with a taller sidewall , these will cut through the snow vs float on top of it. I went with stock, base sized wheels and tires (235/50/18 on 18x8 wheel) and they have never let me down. If you have the 6 piston Brembos in front then a 255/40/19 on 19x9 will work. IMHO

What fits well on the existing rims and what makes for a good Winter tire are probably not the same.

I often use the following sites as references for what can go on a rim.

https://www.1010tires.com/Tools/Tire-Size-Calculator

19x11? You'll have difficulty finding a Winter tire at all, probably even an A/S that would fit well.

19x10? A 285 fits nice. A/S tires are plentiful. Winter tires, you'll have to go out and study brands and offerings.

As a general rule of thumb, it's a good idea to stay within +/- 3% of the existing tire height profile (circumference). While you can deviate from this general-purpose rule, something differing by a large amount could affect speedo (not a big deal, I know), shift points (maybe) and ABS (possibly). It's a Winter tire for Winter driving only. The car might simply drive a bit different if making large changes. Something to be aware of.

My problem is I have a dark horse handling package 19x10 and 19x11. So idk what rims and tires will clear the brembos.
