Default Wheel size with Cobb springs

So I have Cobb lowering springs and i want to get some aggressive size wheels but that will not rub. I know i should be searching but its kind of hard to find something that is exactly what im looking for. To get to the main point im wondering what size and offset I should get to go aggressive and not rub.

Thanks
Trent

Springs are too soft. Get wheels that fit.

What tire size? If you go +35 on lowering springs, I'd wager even 225/40/18 would rub in the rear slightly (which is just about the minimum tire size for 18x8.5" rims). If you want to go wider than that, you'll need more offset accordingly.

+40 you should be able to get away with 225/40/18 without rubbing... barely. It matters on your suspension. You have about 15-20mm to play with from +53 225. Add half the tire width to whatever less offset you pick. If you have a high riding suspension, it's more like 20mm. If you have it dropped, particularly on stock struts, it's more like 15mm.
