I just stack them. Never worried about dust, as any that collects will get washed off after they go on the car and I get around to it.

9.5" is a good width for 255 or 265 wide tires, but is a little narrow for 275 or wider up front in cases where handling and cornering response have any priority.

The car can easily take wider...

Those 9.5" wide rear wheels are going to limit your choice of rear tires to nothing wider than 285. Since you appear to place a lot of emphasis on...
