Default RA-R Wheels into a 05 STi?

Does anybody know what the offset are on these wheels? These are the Enkei made 18x8.5s that come with the Spec C Type RA-R.







The optional wheels on the RA-R are BBS 18x8.5 with a +53 offset, pic in post#3 below, so I would assume the above wheels are the same or close.

They should have no fitment issues on an 05 STi, a Spec C Type RA actually, with 235/40 18 tires, right? They originally come with the 17 x 8 version of the wheels above in silver. Are the 06's any wider than the 05?

Thanks....

(edited for clarity)

Yes they the 12 spoke wheels above are Enkei. These optional wheels pictured below are the optional BBS.





Let me edit the above for clarity.
