So I am looking at getting a spare set of wheels/tires so I can swap out a snow set. I am undecided if I will setup the stock wheels as Dec-March snow tires or as the April-Nov all seasons.

One thing I was interested in doing, is going slightly wider, perhaps an 19x8.5" wheel mostly for looks ( tires look a bit skinny ). Whats odd, is when I spec out wheel tire combos, tire rack comes up with the same tire as the 19x8 version - so they wont really get any wider.

Whats up with that? Do I need to go up to a 19x9 in order to move up to a wider tire?

Max 245 for 8" (ideal is around 215-235)
Max 255 for 8.5" (ideal is around 235-245)
Max 265 for 9" (ideal is around 245-255)
Max 275 for 9.5" (ideal is 255-265)
Max 285 for 10" (ideal is around 265-275)

These are the recommendations I usually follow. Of course, you can change based on your desires for stretched or bulged looks. Oh and assuming you keep the same profile, you should be fine using these recommendations up to the max widths.
