    if u just want to lip your guards so flush wheels will fit id go
    front -14/15x7.5 -5 or more
    rear -14/15x8.5 -2 or more or for rear u could just go 8 with more neg offset

    RIM SIZE 14-15inch is ideal.

    7.5-8.5inch wide will fill the guards adequately.

    -2 to -5 offset, depending on width.

    the higher the negative offset is......the deeper the dish will be.

    considering you said you wanted to flare your guards then i would suggest buying wheels now to suit them flared...

    15x8 -10
    15x9 -13

    that will flush up flared gaurds on a sprinter

    Go 8's on the front with -5 or so. Will fit easy with negative 3 deg of camber.
    And like 8 -10 on the rear.

    Also depends on how low you are going.
