If my brain is thinking this through right I start at +19 with stock and subtract 25.4 from it for the 1" spacers and that puts me at -6.4mm offset right? So this would work? It seemed a little big, but doing the math and seeing that I'm OK with it if I've thought that through correctly.
Yes, your math there is correct. And with a -6.4mm offset you'll have a nice stance and clear those tires no problem. But with the spacers being that big you will need the kind that bolt onto your existing studs and have new studs on the spacers to bolt the wheels onto. I don't think the stock studs aren't long enough to accept a 1" spacer and then bolt the wheel on those. Just making sure you know....

I don't have wheel spacers, I have aftermarket wheels. So when I ordered them I just got the offset I wanted. Mine are 20x9 -12mm offset.
