If you stick with the same width of wheel (9") then I would go with something with a negative offset- no (zero offset) in order to clear. You're wheels are 20x9 + 18mm offset I believe, and you will need about 1/4" more clearance in order to fit them so that would mean anything in a 9" wide wheel with an offset of +10 or lower should clear. The lower the offset the further the wheels will be pushed out.
