You may need to roll the rears. I wouldn't recommend that fitment up front though.

Agreed ... I have that setup for my rears and it looks great - I did have to roll my fenders and the driver's side still rubs a little (hoping to get that sorted out).

Would not do it in the front - it would poke out too much for my taste and it would rub in all conditions imo. Go with a higher offset (ET35) or less wide rim and you will be solid and it will still look good.

Not true. 9.5 et20 will fit to front. Needs little bit added camber and 225/35/19 tyre. Some have used 235/35/19. I have 18x9.5 et22 with 225/40/18 and no rubbing at all. You are right tho, front would be more aggressive than rear.

Thanks for the advice guys !

To be honest I don't really want to run 9.5 in the front .. more like 8.5 its just I don't think the manufacture make 8.5 in 5x120 kind of a pain in the ass really..

what offset is best for a 9.5 soo they don't rub?

9.5 et30 front and et20 rear would work. You can use a 235/35/19 up front and a 265/30/19 in the rear, or use a 245/35/19 all around.
