Probably none, but it depends on the wheel design.

If you want lip you are gonna need wide wheels, or low offset wheels, low disk, and wheels that are designed to have lips.

18x7.5 +45 = crap

if you want that kind of fitment, you bought the wrong car.

you should rethink you're decision to buy wheels purely based on looks.
if you don't know what i'm talking about, search.

anyone else get tired of these relentless posts about "wheels with big lips"?

although i agree with my man raen, i will offer advice, ebcause thats what i do...sometimes

18x9.5 with a +17-20 offset should be good with just a roll.... and the right tire. most likely a 225/35/18.... you will have a healthy 3-3.5 inche lip depending on disk

i wasn't trying to flame you dude.
but buying wheels for looks and all that, when you obviously aren't sure exactly what you're doing, just isn't smart, and can lead to regretful decisions.

just make sure of a few things:
1. your wheels don't weigh more than 20-23 lbs.
2. you have wheel locks
3. you have plenty of money to spend on tires.
4. post pics when you're done. no one ever gets tired of nice fitment
5. don't call them rims, ever. they're wheels.

and big lips are for pussies.
you want deep dish.
