I didn't know that you could run 9.5j on the front. When I ordered mine from rimstyle there is only a 9.5j rear option. I do like the staggered look aswell, and at the moment my rims don't rub. Lowering may change that though lol.
Oh also don't you have trouble with the front arches rubbing on full lock? The paint has flaked off mine due to my wheels catching on full lock when getting outta my drive? Currently running 18"x8.5" on Et30 so poke out like yours on the front!!!!
