Load index for 19" tires

I'm looking to upgrade to 19" wheels on my 55 and after going through the forum I have decided to get 225/30/19 front and 255/30/19 rear. However, I can't find any tires that have the load index of 92 that came with the original tires. All the tires come with 88 front and 91 rear. Is anyone running the above set up?

Our cars are ~1,500kg and with 88 front and 91 back the tires can handle 2,350kg [560 x 2 + 615 x 2]. I doubt I can stuff 800kg of things in our tiny cars, so I think those tires are fine.

Am I missing anything? Thanks
