The spec I'm going to go for is:

18x9 fronts ET 35 with 245 tires
18x9.5 rears et 22 with 275 tires

So that's what I'm going to recommend for you. It's the widest you can run without rubbing or issues, and you keep the relationship of rim/tire in the front of stock (which is important so that your front tires don't flex excessively reducing performance). The rears are not under so much lateral forces so you can keep the rim-width for the tire.

EC-7s are the best bang for the buck and apex is a great company. Haven't heard any complaints here or anywhere else on them.
