I'm after a set of 18" Rota Grids for my mk4 R32 DBP, any condition/colour. Not sure what width/offset I want yet so anything considered

I'd prefer to get second hand ones as they're cheaper and then can paint them what ever colour I want as I'm a paint sprayer lol

Will it be possible to fit 18 x 9.5s all round, without any rubbing issues? Not sure on offset either 23 or 38??

You can but need to run a stretch, 225 tyres will be fine, if your running staggered wheels you still need to keep the tyres the same profile.

Standard aristos are et 38. I would imagine they are more concaved at et 23 but not 100%

I don't mind a bit of stretch
I also like staggered wheels but surely you have to work out the right tyre sizes so that it doesn't interfere with the haldex system? I think as long as the Grid's are 9.5 wide they are nicely concaved and doesn't vary much with different offsets :/ I've seen M7N UP's thread for his carbon project R, and he has Rota grids 9.5 all round, ET 23 up front and ET 38 on the rear, with spacers :/ so I might just copy him haha

There's nothing to work out apart. The RR (rolling radius) needs to be within 4% on each axle. Basically the 4% accounts for brand new tyres and a bald one

But if you have wider wheels on the back, and fit the same size tyres to the front and back, the rear tyres would be stretched more and so rolling radius of the rear wheels would be smaller than the front surely ?

It's not a massive stretch.
