Sooooo... if you want to go with a larger diameter and wider wheel and not have interference issues, the wheel and tire sizes I recommend are:

17 x 9 wheel / 275-40-17 tire
18 x 9.5 wheel / 275-35-18 tire
19 x 9.5 wheel / 275-30-19 tire

Again... those wheel and tire combos I listed will be no taller than the stock 245-50-16 tires which means NO RUBBING.
Is the stock style rim available in all of those sizes? 17, 18 and 19? I was under the assumption that only 17 inch rims are available in the GTA style, with exception to the 16 inch factory GTA style rims. Are they making 18 and 19 inch aftermarket GTA style rims now too?

No, those replicas are only reproduced in a 17 inch diameter as of right now. HOPEFULLY they'll be made in an 18 inch diameter.
