96 Formula wheel and tire upgrade fitment

I really like the oe wheels replica c6 zr1 wheels. It's my dd so I'm trying to keep them square not staggered and as wide as I can without any mods. It's on a stock suspension also. I'm really liking the 18in but not opposed to 17in. It looks like it's either 18x8.5 or 18x10. I was looking at 275 35 18 tires but are they too wide for the 8.5 wide tire? Oh yeah they are 56 offset. Thanks for any or pics of your setup

just keep it stock ws6 sizes. get the 17x9.5" ones with 275/40R17 tires. 17s will take the potholes better and wont ride as harsh as the 18s especially in a DD.
