Well i am sure you will need to change SOME things, alignment etc..

What offset do you plan on running?

Well it will be staggered so front and back would be different

Front 18x9 et30-35
Rear 18x10 et 29-30

So it would be tucked in under the fender

I'm worried about hitting the suspension in the front and the arm in the rear

Any suggestions?

Won't work with these ofsets. 9.5 et30 is 1mm from the trailing arm. And you need quite a bit of fender work to make it fit. At -3 camber you are very close to the wheel well as well.

Front will work depending on your coilovers.

Even with those offsets you will be poking quite a bit and would need to stretch the tire. And add some camber.

Don't poke with 18s unless you want like 6 inches of ground clearance and a monster truck stance. Poke is for smaller diameter wheels unless you want to get wild and raidus your fenders.

It would be if you were running 18x10s and had to raise it up more
