18x9 bullets with 295/35/18

the Cobra is getting upgraded to 315/35/18 proxes r888 and the 295s I have on it now are in really good shape so thought I would buy a set of wheels and put them on my 97 cougar 30th. I love the look of the bullets but Custom wheel shop only has them in 18x9. I have done some searches but cant find too many people running 295s just a lot of 275s. My question is will they fit without rubbing? does anyone have pics of 295s on there mn12s? I also have 275s on the front of the cobra and going to buy new fronts so if not I can use them but was hoping I could just buy wheels for the cougar and swap the tires over from the cobra?

I've been running 285/40/17s on 9" wide wheels for several years. This combination required rolling the rear fender lips, otherwise has worked OK. I also ran MT 295/50/16 DRs at the strip on 9" wide wheels for awhile, with no issues. No way you can fit larger than 255 on the front, however.

Does the custom wheel shop not offer the deep dish 18x10s in the rear anymore?
