The convention for many of us is:
rear 19*9.5 with 275/30 tyres, keeping close to stock overall diameter
front 19*8.5 with 245/35 tyres

With the right offset you could just fit 19*10 rear, but the 275/30 aren't quite right.
I think 19*9.5 on the front would be a problem though; there's little room with the 19*8.5 on the front as it is.

Re: 10 Inch Wide Rims

go to your local motor authority website and look at the rules regarding widths. In NSW, no tyres are to be more than 2in wider than the max avilable from factory. Also, overall vehicle track may not increase more than 2in (max allowable without engineers certificate is 1in). Under no circumstances is the wheel to come into contact with any part of the car (thats at ANY steering angle and ANY suspension extension- all the way down or completely bottomed out.)
I imagine most of this will be the same for the ACT...

Re: 10 Inch Wide Rims

I have 19 by 9.5 rear rims, wearing a true square 275 tyre. They clear the guards by about 2-3 mm. I'd say you'll struggle with 10 inch wide unless you roll the guards.
