Need new summer tires and found a great deal on a set of matching four tires. Only problem is that two for the front are 225-40-19. Will those fit ok on stock 19 inch rims?

Yeah, they'll fit. Though I'd pass up the deal and just get properly sized tires for the car.

What will be the result as the difference in size? Sorry... Don't know much about it

Because there's a greater than 2% difference in size, you'll likely get several fault lights come on (i.e. ABS, TPMS).

225/40/19 on the stock 19x8 wheel is going to look very thin, both width and height wise.

With a car as heavy as ours, you're begging for a bent wheel and forsure gambling on rashing the wheel because of the stretched tire.

Not to mention handling will suffer greatly.
