9.5s use et23 and 8s with et35, thats a 12mm difference in the offsets and the wheel width is 1.5 inches shorter so 0.75 inches shorter on the inside. 12 mm is about 0.48 inches so the inside clearance should be fine. The front should be ok as well.

Is there an issue with brake clearance?
haha on man this is so confusing. I dont care about the tire sizes. I just want a cheap 18in winter wheel setup hopefully using a ///m rep wheel with whatever winters fit. Im running out of time!
