Wheel size ???s

Looking to get new wheels for my base 2014. I was looking at the American racing Drift in charcoal or some chrome torq thrust.

I'm thinking 18" as I like my tires a bit on the meaty side. The 17 stockers are ok but I want a little more wheel.

How wide can I go before needing to change steering stops and still avoid rubbing?

You could probably get away with a 10" in front if you wanted. I would stick with 9" though.

I run 18 x 10 all around with 295s (sve Drift). Its not just the wheel depth that matters, but the offset and back spacing as well. For example, my 19 x 9.5 street rims with 275s are probably closer to the front strut than my 18 x 10 track tires with 295s because they have a different offset.
