my wheels sit like that now with my ride height and im on 9 +27 10 +24! but its all relative...
as for tyre sizes, well you wont need any stretch to fit those sizes and offsets so you can almost go as meaty as you want to. id tend to agree on the 235 / 265 thing since the bigger the tyre the more itll fill up the guard too which is a good thing when offsets arent too aggressive.

Sorry to raise the dead guys, just wondering if anyone knows of anyone running 18 inch XR8 wheels on a 147? Got a guy wanting to give me real good cash for my wheels and his XR8 rims but have no idea what they will look like. All else fails they can go on the Hiace lol. _________________

I agree, my 18x9.5s look far to small as well... on mine i am looking for a set of work vs-xx in a 19x9.5 for the front and a 19x11 for the rear front offsets im still unsure of, rear im looking at +20. not to sure if these will fix nice and close to the guard thou!

When you go 10+ inches you'd be suprised how well +40 to +50 offset sits. I'm dreaming of some 18x11's but finding anything with ~+40 offset that wide is hard (expensive). even with this tame offset you'd have to roll the guards. I wouldn't run woosy 235/255 with em either, it would have to be 285/295's.
My 9.5's +36 with 275/40's seem too narrow to me but still manage to rub the outer guards mind you they're MT's. Been looking at wide tyres too long and now anything smaller than 255's look like echo/corolla spec to me.
