Question about Momo Next wheels w/ certain tires

I am strongly considering the Momo Next wheels in Anthracite for my 08 Tungsten Gray 6. It is 18x8 with the bolt pattern 5/114.3. However, the offset is 40mm. Is this gonna be a problem? I know that the stock 6 is a much higher offset. Ive looked at the pinned guides and the offset is really confusing me. From what I've looked at, it seems like I would have to get one of these two tires..

225/40R18 7.5"-9.0" 38 psi
225/45R18 7.0"-8.5" 38 psi

am I right on this? Which one would be better? And is the 40mm offset going to require the fender rolled or what? I just don't seem to understand what the offset has to do with anything

either tire will do.

you need to roll the rears either way.

thanks! out of the two tires, which do you think would be best for this set of wheels? do you think these wheels will look good on a tungsten gray 6? if not do you have any other suggestions similar to these?

Lol...they are almost identical tires, buddy. The 45 profile will be a little taller in the sidewall and a tad more comfortable to ride on but won't have the slight stretch look or the responsiveness of the shorter sidewall (40 series). It's entirely your call.

Those wheels aren't really my taste but if you like them, that is all that matters! I'm suuuuuuper picky when it comes to wheel design and I don't typically like busy wheels. Take my opinion with a grain of salt.
