SN95 (Wheels)- Trying to buy new wheels to sit flush with fenders (Picture Included)

Hey everyone,

I'm tired of the stock wheel look and I'm looking at upgrading. I'm looking at buying 18x8.5 and 18.9.5 5x114.3 Enkei Kojin wheels for my '94 and need some advice to get the best fit possible.

There are a few different offsets I could go with, and I'm trying to figure out the best to make the wheels sit flush with the fenders without having to do any crazy adjustments to get them to fit.

On the back:

I'm thinking 18x9.5 with a +30 offset

On the front:

I'm not sure what will fit... the options are:

-18x8.5 with a +25, +35, or +50 offset

Again, the bigger the better and whatever sits flush without having to play operation on my car to get them to fit.

What do you guys think? Any advice or tips would be great.

-John

Offset is where the rims hub mounting surface is placed in relation to the wheels centerline.If the hub is on the brake side of the wheels centerline,its got a (-)offset.If the hub is on the front side of the wheels centerline,its got a (+)offset.Offset is listed in mm.25.4mm is equal to one inch.So if you stand the rim up with no tires on it,look at the rim from the side view & locate its centerline,the hub will be sitting about 1" past the centerline to the front side of the rim,if youre using a rim with +25 offset.The picture shown below illustrates it much better.
