Can somebody with experience with wheels and tires check my math here?

Looking to change out the wheels and tires on my wife's premium with the following wheel and tire size. I used the "sticky" tire size calculator.

It looks like I can use 255/50R19 on a 8.5x19 with a offset of 47. Does it look like this combo will clear everything with no scrubbing?

Any advice appreciated.

Cant speak to the wheel used, but generally given that size... Should be fine

With about the same offset at the OE 19x7s, the extra 1.5" of wheel width would be split evenly outward and inward .75". 30mm more tire split 15mm each direction. As for height ~8mm or 1% taller so you will fill the fender 4mm more...

I switched to 245/50 R19 on 8” wide rims. 245/50 has exactly the same diameter and revs per mile as the OEM 225/55.
