Aggressive is referring to the wheels being very close to the fenders and in most instances beyond the fenders. The wheels are usually wide, but it's usually more difficult to get a skinny wheel to fit aggressively. The car needs to be low by the way. The best examples are on the first couple pages of this thread.

One of the best examples of what's not aggressive would be something like say a 17x8" OEM wheel with ridiculously huge tires and mediocre sport suspension...

that should be a fair amount of stretch. your gonna need to either roll your fenders REALLY GOOD or cut them and fitment should be spot on.

Mah bad prolly should have given more info. Running coilovers, rolled and slightly pulled fenders/quarter panels and ofcourse would be running camber...

This one has 19x10 +38 rear on 235/35/19 so if anything just need to know if fronts can be possibly fit?

You'll be fine. Like I said before I was running 9.5" et28 so you'll be poking roughly 2.7mm more than I was but if you have slightly pulled fenders/quarters you will be fine. I could have poked 5 more mm with just rolled fenders and a little more height. I was dumped and sitting the fender on the tire.

It looks great from the front. Stance looks great. I just don't like the rims at all. But thats just my opinion

Not exactly what your looking for but close. The extra half inch doesnt seem worth it. This fitment is already ridiculous...
