Here are 18x8.5 et45 (stock offset of tarmacs). You couldn't go wider on the outside without hitting the arch and you certainly couldn't go any wider on the inside without hitting the trailing arm. I could barely fit paper between the wheel and trailing arm when I test fitted these at the Fifteen52 shop.

This is on 215/35/18's too. You're thinking about much larger tires which will make fitting them even harder.

If I were you, I'd go with 18x8.5 all around on 215/35/18

I test fit the 18x9.5 I was able to get away with few mm between the arch and the wheels.
The car would have a very aggressive stance
