Rear: 255/35-18

What would be the best wheel size combination for the EC-7 to be able to use with this setup?
For stock tire sizes that are slightly narrower than what we normally suggest you could run an 18x8.5" ET35 in the front and an 18x9.5" ET35 in the rear. If you installed any wider of a wheel on the car the tires would look very stretched and even with the suggestions I am giving they will look slightly stretched. For pre LCI cars we usually recommend a 235/40/18 in the front and a 265/35/18 in the rear.

A square setup on your car could consist of 18x9" ET42 wheels with a 245/35/18 tire. You would need at least a 5mm spacer in the front but a 12mm would be on the safer side. Please keep in mind running that much spacer in the front will require some negative camber. A staggered setup could also be used on your awd Xi without a problem and you could run an 18x8.5" ET38 in the front with a 235/40/18 tire and an 18x9.5" ET43 in the rear with a 265/35/18 tire.
