05 Mazda 6i wheel tire offset suspension question

First post here and hope its not a repeat. I have an 05 mazda 6i. I had 18x8 with 45 offset and rode with no problem for 2 years. Wanted to drop back down to 17 inch wheels for a lil better gas mileage so sold them and ran across these konig lace wheels on Craigslist for 320. They looked like new. The offset stamp on the back says et40 so i assume thats a +40. My intentions are to drop it 1 inch with coils, and fenders are not currently rolled. What tire size would you guys recommend for this setup?

17x7 offset 40
1" coil drop
rolled or non rolled fenders.

Thanks and can anyone tell me if they make a double din dash kit, or can i get the saw out and make it myself?

Also the tires on the wheels now are for sale if anyone interested, pm me. 225/55 zr17 falken ziex

Corksport sells the kantech double din dash kit on their site.

You def want to roll those fenders if/when you can ASAP. Especially when going down in offset.
