My suggestion is at least 8 inches wide for that much power. For example, this combo is popular with our V8 customers...Enkei 16x8 with 245/35/16 T1R.

Other good choices include Enkei PF01 15x8 and Toyo 225/45/15 R1R

See the threads on these wheels for lots of additional detailed info. On the 16x8 combo, that fits stock fenders on NB even with lowering over 2 inches. For NA, that combo works up to about 2 inches of lowering and rolled fender lips needed below that level. Similar answer for the 15x8, those combos are plug and play on NB....but on NA it depends on how much lowering and how much negative camber you have. If not lowered much, the fit is easy...if lowered 2 inches or more you can expect to need a fender lip roll.
