Getting some new wheels, need some help

Hey all, still new here but no matter how much I read and try to learn I'm still having a hard time understanding all these numbers. But I'm very anxious to get some new wheels for my 6 and loving the looks of the XXR series 527 wheels

Would I have any problems with 18x9.75 with a 20 offset? If those are to much of an issue would 18x8.75 with 20 or 35 offset have any problems? Open to tire suggestions to (could get fenders rolled if need be)!! Thank you.

Those wheels will not fit on your car without a ton of work. 9.75 is very wide the 8.75 could work with 35 offset just know you may need to trim your fender wells along with a roll.

This was one of the most aggressive set ups a 6 has ran. Egierda on the forums.
FYI, my setup was as follows:
> Enkei RPF1 18x9.5 ET45 (17mm front spacers - resultant ET28; 5mm rear spacers - resultant ET40)
> Falken 615 tires - 225/40/18
> KW Variant II coilovers
> SPC front ball joints (IIRC, -1.5 degrees front camber and -2 degrees rear camber)
> front and rear fenders rolled flat and pulled ~1/4 inch
> front fender liners trimmed

Hey thanks for the info brother! I guess I might avoid those, but do you happen to know of any wheels with similar style with a size of 18x8.75 that might not need that much work to fit!?
