Going to require a pull or at least -2.5* camber in the rear.

I see you have not done any research. The answer is yes, lots of rubbing without the proper modifications.

I've read posts that state the 12' has a stock 50mm offset (not sure if right) which I'm sure also applies to the 13'. I'd like the wheels to be pretty much aligned (flush) with the top of the fender (not sides, obv that'll stick past fender a bit) but don't want the wheel to pass the top of the fender. So basically a semi aggressive offset. So with this info on the car, please help with the below. Thanks

18x8 = __ MAX offset?
18x8.5 = __ MAX offset?

I want to push them out a far as possible with no roll so please keep that in mind. Im thinking i want something around a 40mm to have them aligned (flush) with the top of the fender, but obv not sure and could use some help. Thanks again
First, there's this thread that you should have read before posting:

Second, get the word aggressive out of your head because you don't want to roll your fenders. The wheel/tire won't even get close to "passing" the top of the fender.

Third, grab a ruler and measure how much clearance you currently have from tire to fender lip. Then use this: to calculate the lowest possible offset you can run without rubbing.

Fourth, I don't know where you got +50 offset from. the '11+ WRX wheels are 17x8 +53.

Fifth, forget the 18x8s.
