      17x7 et54 is your starting specs, if you got 36mm adapters all around (35mm to round) it'd look like this with 215/45/17 tires:

      how much you can/want to rub is entirely up to you, if you liked the fitment of the 9.5 et35 in the rear then i'd stick with that. adding spacers back there will only increase your chance of rubbing....

      18x8 et30 has been done a mk4 and doesn't rub on the inside (this can vary by coilover brand though so i can't guarantee you will clear, worst case you'd need a 3-5mm spacer). tire sizes will not...

      if the wheels are 5x100, they'll bolt up fine. you will poke a little bit up front but will be manageable. i'd recommend 215/40/18 tires all around which would give you just a hair of stretch.

      assuming theyre 5x100 and you wouldn't need adapters, those offsets will work pretty well. you may have just a little poke up front but nothing severe at all. i'd recommend downsizing the tires to...

      20mm up front and 15mm in the back would sit similar to this car. i cant guarantee you wont rub at all, partly depends how low you are, but it wouldn't be anything too major:
