Help with JKU Wheels and Tires

Ive just bought a new JK Unlimited Sahara in black.
Im wanting to put some Fuel Hostage 18" Wheels w/ 35" Nitto Trail Grapplers on it. I know there's LOTS of info out there and frankly Im confused as can be now!

Im adding a 2.5" lift as well
so what offset wheels do I need? Id rather not have to use a spacer or will I have to? Don't want to have any rubbing.

Will be my daily driver and I do hit the beach weekly to surf.

Thanks guys! This is my first post also have an 05 TJ Unlimited. I'll be posting pics as this one makes its transformation.

Thanks again for any help that you may be able to give.

Wheel Rim width of 8.0", 8.5", or 9.0". Wheel Back spacing of 5.0 to 4.5.

^^^Any combination of the above, should work just fine.

9.0" width, with a 4.5 Back Spacing, is real popular among our Members..FYI
