Regarding the 19" wheel concern in winter weather driving conditions, I wasn't concerned until now. Why would there be a difference between 18" and 19"? I didn't explicitly order it with the 19s but as it was already on its way I went ahead and paid the extra $$ rather than wait for a custom build. They do look nice! I'm currently working with my dealer to get the all-season tires on it. The build sheet said it was supposed to come with all-seasons.
I think you would do better to forget about the all-seasons and instead buy a set of 18" wheels with dedicated winter rubber. They should offer you a good deal considering that you just bought a new car from them. You'll do a lot better in the winter compared to being on 19s with all-seasons, and you'll have a lot more fun in summer with the performance tires.
