Wheel and tire help


I can get a set of Miro 111's from Sonic Tuning. The ST 160's are back order. There is a group buy for some St 160's on another forum but delivery is mid to late summer. I need new rubber before then. My questions are:

1. Are 19" going to degrade the ride significantly? Like for long highway drives?

2. The choice of rubber drops significantly for 19" on Tirerack's site. What is the recommended tire to use on these?

3. Will I have any rubbing issues with this set-up? Am I going to have to use spacers?

All your help is greatly appreciated.

Here is the link to pics of the wheels in question.
