The rear tire in these photos is a 265 extreme summer tire on a 9.5" ET22 wheel. For a 100% rub free setup with extreme summer or r-compound tires this car would need 9.5" ET43 wheels. For rub free with extreme summer tires the car could use 9.5" ET35 wheels IF the rear fenders are rolled. The ET22 wheels could only be used with 255 tires and a decent rear roll.

The front wheel in this photo is 235/40/18 on an 18x9" ET31 plus a spacer that was seized to the hub. With a 235 tire and no spacer this size would fit fine up front on LCI or pre-LCI models.
Are you sure the pictures are of an LCI? The taillights, trunk, headlights, hood, grills, and mirrors are PRE-LCI on that car...I find it hard to believe that someone would convert so many things to an older style...
