A lot depends on whether you get any snow/ice/slush/freezes, and if so how much.

I believe Yokohama Advan-S are available in the sizes you need, and while best as a summer tire, I believe they can handle a little cold weather, but not snow. If you can go up to 275/30-19 on the rear, you can get Michelin Pilot Sport A/S, which are good all around, but probably not best at anything. Again, not a good tire for snowy conditions, though.

If you get much snow/ice, you might consider identifying the best winter tires for your conditions and getting a set of rims to accommodate them (e.g., some tires are better in snow while others are better on ice). That would let you put the best summer tires (perhaps Michelin Pilot PS2?) on your 19" rims and have the safest ride possible all year 'round.
