Right Wheel Size for Stock Tires

OK, I am going to keep an eye out for deals over the next few weeks for wheels (EC-7s) and am likely just going to put my stock tires on until next summer when I will upgrade. For now, I am going to run the stock conti's...225/45r18s in the front and 255/40r18s in the rear. I am looking at the 18x8.5et35 fronts and 18x10et25s in the back. Am I ok with this wheel sizes for the stock tires? Wondering more about the 18x10s...are they OK or should I go with 9.5et22s instead?

Thanks

You can run the 255 on the 10". But unless you plan on very wide rear tires (track use) you might want to go with 9.5 rear. You can run a 275 on that size wheel, and there's less chance of rubbing, as well as lighter weight. The ET22 looks aggressive as well in the 9.5 size.

Thanks for the advice, I may just go that route.
