Default Offset for wide wheels on a 245?

Hey guys,

I'm looking at getting some Diamond Racing wheels for my 1985 245 Wagon, and I'm unsure about the offset. My car is on IPD lowering springs and KYB shocks, and I really want to put a 15x9 in the rear. Any ideas what offset I would need to order to clear in the rear?

My setup: 91 240, fenders rolled flat, stock height. 17x9 et26 with 25mm adapters and 245/45/17. Normally no rub. Tires rub with people in the back seat or with lots of articulation. No rub with me and the wife up front going over speedbumps and in normal driving. Wheels never rub, just the tires and barely at that. I could go with a 235/40 and probably eliminate the issue.
