That will look good. If you get "too flush" in the front, you spray debris along the doors.

Here is a picture of my front 8.5 x 18" +25 mm offset wheels. To me, the fronts are a little "too tucked." But, I'm getting used to them (and more accepting).

Your 9 x 18" +25 mm offset wheels will protrude another quarter inch and will look better.

I put 2mm spacers in the back an just barely have enough stud left. I checked out the eibachs and will probably get those. Thank you for the advice and also for the installation connect.

You may want to install some extended studs if you're not getting enough thread on them. If you don't have a press, it's a pretty easy swap if you've got a hammer and some washers.

Lowering isn't going to help much. 255s in the rear are too short by 0.65" - that's significant. Does your car have VDC? If so, be careful as that too-small size delta F-R could potentially trigger it unintentionally. If no VDC, all good; but I'd encourage you to install the right diameter tires sooner than later.
