19" wheels don't fill the arches any more than 18". As all the wheels are the same OD, it is all an optical illusion, (wider wheels may look a little different), but still same arch gaps unless you lower the car.

Know what you mean about the rose tinted glasses... many get caught out forgetting BMW, RWD, summer tyres and winter, just doesn't work in the bad stuff. A staggered wheel set are even worse.
