Generally you can't go over about a 275 tire in the rear which is about 11" wide. So a 10" wheel may be a little wide for it. I think a 9" wheel is too big in the front, because again the largest tire you can reasonably run is too narrow for that width wheel. Also, in both front and rear you have to be careful with wheel offset if you're going to use wide tires.
How low do you want the car to be? What suspension will you be running in the front and the rear? Give me the info on these and I can probably help you. I run 18x8's on the front, and 20x10's in the rear...
