Whatever your budget allows.

On average without heavily modifying wheel arches, a nice 16x8 or 15x9 can be run only if you run a safe offset.

9" is pushing it however.

Pics of car and swap post haste!

they won't fit and if they do by some miracle good luck riding on them. Do you like your kidneys? make sure when you piss you don't see blood. lol.

16" is the ideal wheel tire combo. anything larger you start getting into a harsh ride and also start compromising suspension components. they will wear quicker.

if the rims you have are good minus that one tire.. replace it and drive happily.
