You may need to roll your rear fenders. I run 18" with an offset of 46 with 225/40/18's and had some rubbing on my wagon.

Also, posting your suspension setup will help.

^^ The only problem with these (and the reason I got 10 spoke wheels) is that they will highlight how crappy your brakes look...stupid 2 pots. If you're going to go with something like this, I'd recommend cleaning and repainting your calipers at least.

A couple reasons, they will highlight the really tiny stock brakes with giant shiny wheels, the car will look a little monster-truckish unless they get some lowering springs, and they will make the ride worse.
*All this is assuming a mostly stock RS.
