Like 'machinebuilder' I swapped the 20" on my car for 19" before I picked up the car in 2018. I took two cars for a test drive and couldn't tell the difference in the ride, but know from past experience that large rims=tire replacement. Runflats will save you but a runflat can't be repaired if it is driven a long distance 'flat'. I've had experience and have been able to repair and not repair runflats.
If your roads are better than our Toronto cow paths then you'll be OK.
Our highways are pretty good.
The freeze thaw cycle is brutal on roads so you should be OK in the south.

Enjoy. I still love mine and after three recent trips the massage comfort seats are incredible.
