Fat lip Offsets

Need help with offsets for my son's surprise birthday present. I'm surprising my son on his birthday which is at the end of this month. I bought him a platinum colored 2009 G37 sedan journey. Im gonna be ordering him the Accuair Endo cvt air suspension kit. I need help with the wheels. I'm thinking Ac Forged 312 wheels or the Ceika wheels. 19x9 front and 19x10.5 rear. What offset will give a decent amount of lip without sticking out pass the fender. A flush look with maybe a tiny bit of camber? Like the one in the picture below..i don't want the tire stretched a lot either, but willing to work with the best option for his car to look good. I'll get the fenders rolled and pulled if need be. I looked and searched and can't figure out what offset to get. We live in Hawaii so I need to get this right the first time because shipping is gonna cost me around 5-600. Any help will do. Thanks and Aloha.

I'm not 100% sure on the other specs, (others can chime in here) but I'm almost 100% positive that 10.5 is too wide for the rear on the sedan, 10" is the max without crazy camber (10.5" works on coupes though)...the rear fenders are rolled from the factory...getting them pulled will not look good unless you are ready to do a ton of body work (the car pictured above does not have pulled fenders)

Ok thanks. I got in touch with the owner of the sedan in the picture, he said it was a 10.5 rear wheel. Bit I also was thinking that 10.5 might be too wide, based on the pics I've seen. Thanks for pointing that out.

Lucky son of your's.

Whatever wheel you get, get one that's easy to clean. Like that 1st one (AC Forged).

I'd get the drop done 1st, then look into wheels to see what can fit w/that drop. I imagine it'll be slammed when it's parked.

Yup, I'm leaning more towards the AC Forged. Chrome lip with a copper plated face with chrome hardware. Yes the car will be aired out when parked. My son helped me out a lot while he was growing up. I became a single parent from when he was 7. He made it easier for me by helping me with everything around the house. He deserves this.

well thats interesting, I've never heard of anyone getting a 10.5 to fit without some ugly fender work..maybe it fits when it fully dropped on the bags, sorry couldn't be of more help
