I read the FAQ, they say

rear:
18x9
275/35/18 tire

front:
18x8
245/40/18 tire

the wheel i'm looking at isnt made in those sizes, only in 18x9.5 and 18x8.5

so will the .5 make a difference? is it going to fit?

What are the offsets of the wheels, that will play a huge roll in whether they will fit or not. Either way though I think you may need to do some minimal rolling or cutting of the fenders. What wheels by the way?

will having a smaller wheel.... (say 8.5 in the rear instead of 9.5) while still running the same 275 or 265 wide tire make fitment easier and minimize rubbing?

18x9 w/48mm offset in the rear will be really close. You will probably have to roll the fenders.

18x8 w/48mm offset in the front will rub the strut with 245/45R18's. Step down to 235's or add about a 5mm spacer.
