It depends on what you want to do with your guard units. One of the great things about the Imperial Guard is its versatility.

The best thing for your allied detachment is to add in the things that are missing.

As Space Wolves have most weapons systems covered in their army the only thing the are short of is numbers and in this the IG units can help enormously.

If it were me I would be adding as many cheap extra wounds ........ err I mean valued soldiers, as possible.

if you are taking Vet squads then I think the best way is to take either Plasma or Melta weapons (obviously in groups of 3) in a chimera. If the wolves have a bunch of melta/plasma then take the other, that way you are spreading out what everything does well.
