18*8.5 or 18*9 or 18*9.5

Hi Guys,
I have a 2014 Q50 with upgrade sport brakes. Looking at three sets of 18s for winter, and curious if 18*8.5 +35 , 18*9 +30 and 18*9.5 +30 and wonder what the “look” difference would be. Thank you

Not 100% sure how the Q compares to the G at the fenders (as you already know lol) but the 18x8.5 +35 would be your best bet, offset is good and you can run a narrower tire for better winter work. Just need to confirm brake clearance. The 9+30 will be poking a bit and the 9.5 6mm more.

So I wound up going with Konig Ampliform 8*8.5+35 Bronze all around and the fronts didn't clear the calipers :/? I need a 5MM spacer to clear, Not sure why since Konig even confirmed the +35 for a 2014 Q50S with correct. I have no luck
