Default How wide without rolling?

Just looking for an idea on wheels. I have an '04 WRX. I want to get new wheels but I want to get them as wide as I can while still being flush without rolling the fenders, just looking for some offset measurements and width.
Thanks.

For the record, flush is bad. You want them to be slightly sunken in for over a dozen valid reasons. Get something 8-8.5" wide with an offset in the mid +40s.

So I probably had bad wording with saying flush. Just don't want the wheels sticking out an inch
