I'm giving you a hard time.

You've got a lot to learn about wheels and tires I think. There is no difference in "how low you can go" between an 18 inch and a 19 inch wheel with a tire of the same width and overall diameter.

No that was a joke thread. It got locked because I'm an asshole.

Head over to the wheel and tire section of the forums and look at the pics threads. People post some pics and often times their offset and wheel/tire sizes.

First look up basics of how wheels and tires are sized. That means in terms of wheels: offset, width, diameter, hub centric, and hole patterns. In terms of tires learn width, profile ratio, internal diameter, and how to calculate the outer diameter of a tire. Also learn what tire widths fit on what wheel widths.

OP, you are still in Santa Cruz, make sure you buy at least 5 wheels. You will bend/break/damage one.
Search for 19'' and damaged/broken/bent wheels on this site.
