wheel fitment

I am hubswapping my car and need to know what offset to get so my wheels will be flush with the fenders. I'd like to do 18 x 9.5 front and rear but I doubt that will fit in the front. They offer a 23 and a 15 offset in the 9.5 width. there is also a 43 and 30 offset in an 8 inch width. before anyone says it, I tried the search and it didn't yield results. any help is greatly appreciated.

thanks

You want the higher offsets or they will stick out. My fronts are 18x9 with 36mm offset and my rears are 18x10 with 45mm offset. Fitment is great and my tires are even with my fenders all the way around.

You would need around +30 to +32 for a 9.5" on the front.

The 8" wheel with +30mm would be fine. But if you wanted 9.5's all the way around I have to wonder what tires you were planning on because that might need to be reconsidered.

I'll know the tire size for sure tomorrow. I was just trying to get an idea.
