Forestar f14 wheel offset

Hello, i am looking into getting Forgestar f14's for my 04 gt. I would like to get 18x9.5 all the way around but i wasn't sure what offset would be the best or if the 18x9.5 would fit in the front without rubbing, the car is lowered with Eibach Pro springs. I was thinking +26 offset, but I'm not sure. Will that work for both the front and rear without any issues? Thanks

Well since no one is chiming in here, maybe I can help or get some more questions answered. Why not go staggered?

18x9 fit front according to AM with a +22 offset

Then you could do the 18x10 rears. Didn't look to see what that offset is (what AM carries that is).

Now obviously you are not limited to what AM carries but I'm sure it's probably a very moderate offset so people don't find themselves rubbing fenders or suspension parts.

If I were you I'd invest in the tool that helps you figure out exactly what offset and tire to use. I believe summit sells it. This would give you exact measurements for your car exactly before making a huge purchase like a set of forgestars.

Thanks for your reply. I have been looking at all different setups, and I'm leaning towards a square setup as opposed to staggered because I want the car to be more neutral in the corners, wider tires in the rear promotes understeer. So, I want to get the widest wheel and tire that will fit all the way around without having to modify anything. I know 18x9 will fit but I wasn't sure about18x9.5 in the front.

You may want to check out this site. It's not bad once you get used to what it's all about.
Rim & Tire Size Calculator. Custom Offsets - Wheel-Size.com
Basically you could take those measurement that the diagrams show for clearance to your existing setup and rim criteria, enter into diagram and then try different proposed setups to see how clearances compare.
Should be able to find your existing rim offset printed on inboard side of rim.
Search thru the site and you'll find the OEM tire setups, sizes and offsets for your year car. Very good site.

I just had 18x9.5 in the front. They only rubbed at full turn and even then it was just rubbing on my coilovers

I'm not sure on the offset, they were the Steeda Ultralite 2s though. I had 245/40 and 255/40 up front. The tires never rubbed, it was just the inside lips of the wheel would rub
