19x8 front, 19x9 rear is the biggest you would ever want to go, from the research I have been doing. Just make sure they weigh the same or less than your current rims. Otherwise your just hurting yourself.

Just wondering...how did those 4 "round things" the tires are on become know as rims? Actually the rim is the outer portion of the WHEEL!

to find out what your stock rims weigh, take em off, put em on a scale, and that gives you a wheel-air-tire weight. then go online, see what the tire weighs, subract 5 more for air, and thats your wheel weight.
