Question R32 GTR wants bigger wheels! Help me with offset sizing please

Hello guys. I don't know much about wheels in terms of offsets. I want to throw some new wheels on the R32 GTR but don't know what I can get away with.
The wheels I really like are 189.5 for the front and 1810.5 for the rear. The sales guys told me over the phone that a 22 offset would be best for my application but I wanted to see what some on here thought of this.
-Johnny

These guys are the makers of the wheels I like. It's the 2nd set down on the page.

The wheels that are on the car now were added by the previous owner. They are Axis wheels, not sure of the model. They are 17's and do have different offsets. Not bad looking, but I want something more aggressive.

I didn't expect that you would stock these, really. All I am really after here is an offset number for my R32 GTR that will take the wheel right to the inside of the front fender and rear quarter and give it that heroic stance everyone looks for.

Has been covered quite a few times (by me amongst others) but quick answer:

18x9.5 et12 with a 265\35R18 tyre is about as aggressive as you can get without arch rolling. Though depending on ride height these can still rub.

Don't bother with differently sized wheels front and back.

Thanks a lot for the input. I will look for something like this then I suppose. My arches have been rolled so I should have a little more clearance and hopefully won't have many issues.

+1 for what Cris has said.
10.5 widths in low offset only really work on r33 & r34 GTRs

I have maina racing forged 19" on mine to be honest they are too big and the tyre profine is too small for any type of spirited driving

I know a few standard R32 GTR run 18x9.5J ET +15
If you want to be safe, I think the standard Nismo guide is 9.5J +22 or something around that area.
