Yes, the CE28N in a +47 and +50 clears the Brembos as well (in a 17, so an 18 should be no problem). You can also do a +44 offset in 18x8.5, but with that I think you will be limited to stock tire width (225). At least that's all I've seen people run. The lower offsets push the wheel out toward the fender, whereas the higher offset pushes it toward the strut. If you want wide tires, you want to optimize the use of space between the two. It appears that in the 8.5x17 and 8.5x18 sizes this is achieved with a +50 offset. With that offset, you should be able to run widths between 225-255 (adjusting the sidewall series appropriately to maintain some semblance of stock tire diameter of 25.0")
