optimal 16x8 offset for my mk1

got a 2000 zx3 that im thinking about getting some fresh wheels for. i want wide wheels for wide tires because ive never heard anyone complain about too much traction. anyhow im just not sure what offset to run with. i know that a 225/50/15 on stock 15s (52.5mm offset) rubs the strut just barely and that is all im concerned about. so long as i can keep the tire off the strut im pleased but what offset would put me as close to the strut as possible without rubbing? i would like to tuck as much of the wheel under the fender as possible. a little poke isnt a big deal but i dont think i can flare the fenders out a full inch.
