Ideally (imho) tyres 225/40R18, rims with offset 45, and not wider than 8J on the front or it will touch the upper control arm. No modifications needed.

With lower offsets the rims+tyres will stick out more, likely requiring you to roll the rear wheel arches. Rolling the rear arches will give you +/- 10mm extra room on the outside, i.e. you can go down to offset 35.

Moreover, offset 35 will make room for 8,5J wide rims on the front. You will likely need to warm (with blowdryer) and push outwards the plastic front wheel well liners as the tyre may touch it at fiull lock. No big job.

Success!
