265 is on the wide side, 255 would be fine, but 265 will work, and will defintely work with stock suspension, you'd only have to roll if you had them lowered all the way on a nice coilover kit of some kind

Does the 'bumpiness' increase with 50% or something or just 10%? Is it possible to drive on speed bumps with lets say 18 mph? Or does your head hit the roof then? A bit of bumpiness isnt a problem i think but i dont want to buy 19s and find out the driving isnt as good as it was before.

OK, I just put on my 19" CSLs with 235 in front and 265 in back (goodyear eagle F1s)...

The car feels much better than it did with my oem 5 spoke 16" wheels. Not only does it feel more solid on the road, but it also feels smoother... Granted I have not hit a pothole yet but hitting road junction points and what not feels better than it did with my stock wheels and stock continentals...

Overall....

19" CSLs
look amazing
don't feel any bumpier than stock 16's
only downside - car does feel slower due to the weight and weighted extremities of the wheels...

goodyear eagle f1
handle noticably better than old continentals (no shocker lol)
look great
no road noise

Oh and did I say they LOOOK GREAT!!!!
