The offset is way too low, go with a +45ish offset

im guessing those are more like 18x8.5 and those will be flush so a combination of things come into play, suspension, ride height, tire width, and fender modification. now go do some research

Well, the car is not actually that low, I currently have eibach springs, fender rolled and 225/45/18 tires.

These are the wheels:

they wont be that flush.

with the tires you have now, and your fenders are rolled, you should be fine.
