Default Wheel fitment question.. for my 09 WRX

Stock sizing for the wrx is 17x7 53mm
225/45/17 tiers.

Im looking at

18x8.5 45mm offset
225/40/18 tires.

According to this calculator.


Im looking at it being

14mm closer to the struts
24mm farther out towards the fender
which makes it like half a percent larger then oem setup.

With this setup do you think I would have many rubbing issues on a fairly mile drop running a bit of negative camber?
