Didn't think about fitment issues when I lowered the car. Was concentrated on looks and suspension and ride. Live and learn

Could there be an even more aggressive offset depending on how much it's rolled or are you basing your recommendations on knowledge/experience for typical fender rolls? Thanks again for your help.

I think I'm finally starting to narrow down what I want. Still have not given up on deep dish style but probably 19" are no longer a possibility for me. So for concavity I think I found my solution

For deep dish I want to research some more...heard some disadvantages but I'm pretty ignorant about that type of wheel.
The 18x9.5" ET35 with a 255/35/18 street tire is about as aggressive as the LCI can take in the rear without pulling the fenders or modifying the rear fenders with fender flares. The lower offset 18x9.5" ET22 has the same concave face as the 18x9.5" ET35 so there isn't anything to gain by going with a lower offset, more aggressive wheel unless you wanted the wheels to poke past the fenders.
