Default '01 OBS 18x8 Offset?

Looking to swap my set of 17x6.5 wheels out for some 18x8s. I'm familiar with the concepts of offset and wheel fitment, though far from an expert. I believe the wheels I have are somewhere around +48 (I can check after work) but going to 8" wide front and rear would change my fitment I would guess. I have coils, so camber is adjustable if that makes a difference. Stock brakes, so no big calipers to worry about. Anyone have experience with this?

If you are primarily asking if the wheel swap size will fit. Depending on the car you drive it should be fine. You wont have to worry about rolling fenders until you either have bigger brakes, have wheel spacers or go past 8.5-9 inch wide wheels/tires for rubbing against your inner fender well or your suspension (whatever you may be running). 48 offset is pretty shallow as well so it will basically give you a more flush looking fit to the car. What wheels/tires do you plan to be using?
