guys...my rims arrived today, PLEASE HELP!

ok. the wheel specs are as follows...............

2(18X8) with 2" Lip & 2(18X9) with 3" Lip

38 Offset
Black Gloss Finish With Chrome Lip
Bolt Pattern: 5X120

Center Bore: 72.6MM

they arrived today and look HUGE and wide. maybe its just me but by looking at them they seem like they are way too WIDE for my car, at least the rear ones. the rear ones are my concern because they are 9inches. now my question is how the heck will i mount a tires on my rear rims without them rubbing? and what tire do you guys think i can mount and be safe with???

any input would really be appreciated. thanks guys
