Depends on the size tire you want to run. Anywhere in the 44-50 range should work alright if you don't want to run a tire over 245. The wider tire you go the lower the offset needs to be so that you don't rub the strut.

hey gary . I have 18x8.5 on my car with 235/40-18 dunlops and theyre fine . your suspension will need to be a little stiff cause if your rear dips real low , then it will rub on the fender . But the wide look is well worth it !
