18x9.5 et 22 18x10.5 et 27 or 18x10 et 25
The 17x9.5" ET22 is a fitment that is not produced. We have not seen or heard of anyone running the 17x10.5" ET27 and 17x10" ET25 on the pre-LCI e9x. There have been those that run the 18x9.5" ET22 and 18x10" ET25 with a 265/35/18 on the rear of a pre-LCI e9x with rolled fenders before.

There is also a customer running the 18x9.5" ET22 EC-7s in the rear with a 255/35/18 Michelin PSS in the rear which is stretched and exposes the wheel for easy curbage, but here are a couple photos showing how it looks:

The fronts were an 18x9.0" ET31 with a 225/40/18 tire. This is a stretched fitment and not usually recommended as it exposes the rim and does not protect the wheel as well as the recommended tire sizes. If you are referring to the front of the car, we've only heard of customers going up to the 18x9.5" ET22 with about -3 degrees of camber, but nothing wider than that without a spacer.
