Ok, so my stock 17" AMG wheels have been hit pretty hard by the de-icing chemicals they use to keep the roads from freezing over here in the Pac NW! I have decided to upgrade to 18" wheels but I need to know the correct size and offset to look for! I definitely love the staggered look and want to keep that! Also, any input on a good tire for this setup would be appreciated!!! Thanks...

I am considering 32 mm offset 18x8 front 225/45/18 and 18x9 in rear 255/40/18 with conti dws w rated xl load all season just because I live Calgary and the weather may change with out prior notice. I have those tires on my 17s right now and they work amazng all year round especially in heavy rain.
