Default 235/55/19 vs 255/45/20 tire selection?

Those of you running 235/55/19 tires, do you find that the tire selection in that size is rather crappy? I mean, there are plenty of tires in that size, it's just that most of them appear to be standard/grand touring type tires.

Looking at 255/45/20, there are some more interesting tire choices such as Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 if you want performance all-seasons and quite a few summer tires, too.

Is 235/55/19 somewhat of an odd size and should be avoided?

Debating whether it's worth it to upgrade to 20" wheels just from tire availability standpoint...

Always run 255/50/19, Conti DWS is available in that size.
