Looking for some Ideas/Advice on Wheels

It is time to replace wheels/tires and wanted some ideas and suggestions:

Firstly my set up is a little different, hodge podge if you may:

Type 162's all around 18x8 ET34 with 12.5 mm spacers in Front, 18x8.5 ET37 with 20 mm spacers in rear.

With my spacers, would that mean my offset is 22 in front and 17 in rear???? I might rub a little in the rear with passengers in back going over bumps, but very seldomly do I have anyone with me.

I have KW V1's in the rear that are adjustable coil overs, however I sold the blown KW's on the front and put on HR Sport Springs and Struts.

I like how my car sits and I actually do like the 162 look, but COULD I GO WITH 19" WITH MY CURRENT set up.......LOOKING FOR A WHEEL ENGINEER TO TELL ME IF I GO 19" WHAT OFFSET AND TIRE SIZE I SHOULD GO WITH?

IF I GO WITH NEW 19" RIMS AND A SQUARE SET UP, WITH ASYMETIC TIRES (MOUNT EITHER DIRECTION)....WHAT SIZE RIMS WOULD WORK?
