Need help with 19" BBS LM/LM-R sizing

Well I have reached a crossroads on whether I am going to keep the 1M or trade it in for something else (GTR or R8). I am leaning towards keeping the 1M and have decided if I do I am going to be getting new wheels and tires for a more unique look.

At the front of my list is 19" BBS LM or LM-R in DBK finish. Second choice would be HRE P44SC or P43SC. My question is how aggressive of an offset can I run without rubbing or very slight rubbing? I am currently running KWV3 coils, stock wheels, and 10mm spacers all around. I do get some rubbing on the front when the wheels are turning (I think some people have reported this issue with stock suspension and wheels).

I am thinking the following:
LM-R: 19x8.5 ET 22 front, 19x10 ET 20 rear
LM: 19x8.5 ET 17 front, 19x10 ET 25 rear

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
