I need your help w/ wheels and suspension questions, thanks!

I am going to run JIC FLT-A2s for suspension, but I was wondering if my watanabe's will fit w/ this setup.. my rs8 are 15x7 w/ +18 offset (i think).. you think that be ok or do I need spacers or what?? Also, what size tires should I be running for normal everyday drive and occasional drifting?? I am an idiot when it comes to suspension and wheels, so any help would be greatly appriecated, thanks!

Tons of room! everything's fine.

People seem to like Dunlop FM901 or Yokohama AVS ES100 on a 15" wheel.. they're both ~$75/tire in 205/55-15.

I like 205/60-15 but that's just me, much narrower tire selection in that size (no FM901s).
