Question Anyone running 19's with Stock ride height? POST pics please!

Planning on getting some 19's and I'm pulling my hair out trying to decide whether or not to lower my 135.

I think the suspension height looks great with the stock and aftermarket 18" wheels but I was wondering if anyone was running 19" on stock suspension. Does it look like a 4x4?

Let's see some pics of 19's on stock suspension...please.

Thanks in advance!

Wow...I really appreciate all the pics guys. They all look very nice. This is great news. Thanks very much!

Some of you I can see what tire sizes you are on...but a couple I can't tell.

Singh, Twin Fed, Simon135i... what size tires are those front and rear?

135GCL, I can read the back tires are 265/30/19 what size are the fronts?

Are any of you having any RUBBING issues??? Any issues with 4 people in the car?

I am running 235/35/19 (8.5") ET48 F, 265/30/19 (9.0") ET50 R (Forgstar F14), I rarely rubbed and only rubbed a little on big bumps on the freeway, but I have bought Eibach Pro-Kit on stock dampers (about 3/4" drop from Sport) and I rub a just a little more often on "medium" bumps and mostly on the passenger side of the car and this is just with me in the car, but I may get fenders rolled so that i can run the tires I have now
