the largest standard front wheel offering for this car is 8 J x 18 rim with 40mm ET and using a 215/40 tyre

so to use a 8.5J x 19 rim and use a 225 /35 tyre then this will fit as the wheel is only 3.3mm closer to the suspension strut and the rolling diameter is only 1.7% larger

on the rear again you should be OK

as largest original is 9J x 18 with 40 ET and 245/45 tyre
so using a 9.5J rim and using a 255/40 tyre again its 3.3mm closer to the strut and 1.3% larger diameter

the only thing to watch is on both the tyre will poke out of the arch by 9.3 -10mm for both front and rear so you may have issues with wheel arch clearance when going over a bump and on full lock
