First of all, I am pretty new to the car scene. I wanted to get rid of my stock 18 inch wheels and tires on my 2016 Genesis Coupe 3.8. I bought some new wheels today which are the Vordoven Forme 9 19inch wheels.

19X9.5 +22 - 5X114.3 - 73.1
19X10.5 +22 - 5X114.3 - 73.1

There are the wheel sizes. I was wondering what type of summer tires would fit on these wheels without any issues. I was looking at the Hankook Ventus v12's but didn't know what size to buy. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

How do I know which aspect ratio to get?
Keep it at under 40 if you want to stay near the same as what you have. With a stock suspension you can go taller but your wheels are also a little more pushed outwards than stock.

Here's a good site to see how they change. You want to divide the stock back diameter by the stock front to get a number. then stay close to this with any different diameters. They can be taller but beware rubbing.

I would also concur with Red that 245/35 and 275/35 probably would be your best bet for tire size.

However, don't get the V12's, even if they are the evo2's. They barely improved over the evo1's, aren't any cheaper and scored quite a bit lower than quite a few other summer tires. Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 are newer than the evo2's, are marginally inferior to Pilot Super Sports (at a price difference of $655 vs $1058), and are cheaper than evo2's. With the exception of racing, there pretty much isn't any reason to get a more expensive tire over the Indy 500's.

Pilot Super Sport Overall dry 8.55
Firehawk Indy 500 Overall dry 8.42
gF Sport COMP-2 Overall dry 8.23
Ventus V12 Evo2 Overall dry 7.91

The scores for the Indy 500's, COMP-2's, and PSS were reported about 2 weeks apart in 2016 with the same model car, a 2014 BMW 328i sedan.

This is the 1st time I've heard of the Indy 500's.
I've been shopping for tires ever since I got the gen pretty much.

Started off thinking that the BFG Sport Comp-2's were at the top, then quite a few people steered me towards the Hankook Ventus V21 evo2's.
But after looking at that testing, the Indy's look more promising, especially on a wet road. And cheaper.

Well it's new tire product release time so most of the big name tire manufacturer's are bringing out their new models, either last year or this year. The Firehawk Indy 500's came out last year to replace the Firehawk Wide Oval. Pilot Super Sports are being replaced by Pilot Sport 4S, Continental ExtremeContact DW succeeded by ExtremeContact Sport. Bridgestone brought out the RE-71R in late 2015, Hankook brought out Ventus RS-4 this year (RE-71R competitor). Both of those last two tires should handily beat PSS on a track, although they are rated at 200 tread wear and cost way more. Ventus Evo3's should be coming out soon, however, none of the tires I mentioned look to dethrone the price/performance value of the Indy 500's, so I didn't mention those tires due to marginal performance benefits at significant cost increases.

I just got 255/35R19 and 285/35R19 Firehawk Indy 500's last week, they replaced some really old Ventus V12 Evo1's. They don't even really spin in the wet once warm, this does not include launching or high rpm downshifting.
