There are a million threads on this. I know because I made one of them after installing mine. On stock wheels and suspension just get 20mm fronts and 12 or 15 rears depending on tire size.

OEM 19"s? Use 15mm Front and a 10mm rear. Looks good.

I would stick with 12 front 10 rear...or even google it to see different selections. I personally ran 15mm all around with my OEM 18s.
