Default New Wheels and Tires??!!

Ok, so here is the situation. I have a 2012, GT, 3.55, with Brembo Brake Pkg. Have intake, exhaust, and tuner installed making some extra HP. I have the stock Brembo wheels....19x9 all around...and am at the time where I need new tires. I am thinking about buying new wheels as this would be the time to do so. I'm thinking of a staggered, black set....possibly 19x9 in front and 19x10 in back....I want to go wider in back for better contact/traction and look.

So, my question to everyone is:

1) What wheel manufacturers would you suggest that would yield good durability, performance and looks?

2) What tires would everyone suggest for street, summer/warm weather only driving? Let's assume based on performance and ride with no cost issues for tires.

Thank you in advance.

American muscle has lots of packages available, all with good quality wheels. For tires I would probably go with Nitto or Continental.

Seems pricy... but not so much after you start to price tires/install on the stock rims. My Michelin Pilot AS+ with installation etc was closer to that price than id like to admit.

Thanks for the replies. I think I have my wheel choices down to three options. However, I now have a question about wheel width and back spacing.

Without modifying the car how wide can I go, particularly in the back, before the tire will stick out past the fenders?

I am thinking of going with a 19x10 in the back. One wheel options doesn't come in that width though...only 19x11. So wondering if that is too wide or what?

Thanks.
