Default Help me from making a wrong choice!

I need wheels....badly... so ive decided to buy some work emotion xd9's...the problem is I want to go as wide as I can (18x8.5 or 18x9) and I dont want to stretch my tires...fender rolling is fine by me but I was just wondering if you guys can tell me what would be the optimal offset and tire size for this set up?

btw im running rotora brakes front and rear and tein flex coilovers if that helps

the 18x9 isn't available in the 5x100 so that should make your choice easier and the XD9s aren't available in 1/2 sizes.

They running it still?

I thought that was over with months ago.

if it's still running then those would work nicely.

Fender roll in the rear and be good.

i believe the wheels just started coming in and there should be a few sets of 18x9 that r still available. 18x9 +43 would be perfect for guys that dont want to run stretched tires.
