you can roll on 19's and I have seen W202's on 19's in real life. (mega low profile tyres)

The only problem is that it makes your brake discs look puney and even though your car may be lowered it still looks a bit odd.

Stick to 18's trust me.

Two links below to tyre size calculators - for calcs on retaining rolling radius; as to whether they'll fit - largely depends on wheel offset as well as tyre size.

Seen 19's done, with just rolling of the arches.

Looked overkill for a 202.

Do as koolvin says, 18's... ;)

Ain't no problem w/ 19's!! Go for it!!

With a 19x8.5 wheel, you would go 235/35/19 tyres.

For rear, you can even go up to a 19x9.5 with the proper offset, and run a 265/30/19 tyre.

Of course, you have to have the fenders rolled and shaved to avoid rubbing.

I'm running 19x8.5 all the roung with absolutely no rubbing issues. :)
