New 18" rims

i have a blue 2005model wagon and i need new rims. i would like to go for
18" rims and i found someone i like:

Kosei 8.0X18 114-5 ET45 MZ Antracite Polish


with 215/40R18 tires.

or
Mille MX9 8.0X18 114-5 ET42 1059 GT2 Dull Black

with 215/40R18 tires.

My question is.. with those rubb without rolling the fenders?
or does they fit perfectly and is the offset okey ?

both will need a roll most likely.

I like the 2nds better, but neither are great IMO.

im with flipper. 2nd ones are ok. 1st set wouldnt fit the mazda6 at all. and make sure to keep a close eye on the offset. since our car is so picky, its easy to buy a set of wheels that wont even fit on our car.

the silver one's wouldnt look bad. and that offset if a good one also. but id look at something with a bit more tire. i run a 225/40/18 myself. but thats just to clear my fenders since im dropped on coilovers.

so with the silver rims :
- Monaco 8.0x18 114-5 ET40 Mirabeau Silver Polish
- 225/40/18 tires
i would not be needed to roll the fenders ?

nobody in my area do fender rolls so i would like to buy 18" without doing any mods to my car :P

starting to give up this rims hunt for my car :P

you will have to do a fender roll with just about any 8" wide wheel that has less than a 50 offset.

given that those are ET40.... you will definitely need a roll.

I would recommend renting a roller and do it yourself. You will get a much better looking and fitting wheel if you do and it is a very simple thing to do.

the Monaco Silvers look best, and yeah x8 +40, roll for sure, if you are gonna roll, why not go with wider tires? 215 on a x8 is pretty skinny, i'd go at least 225 or 235

edit:
oh ok i just saw that you are going with 225 now.

I just installed a set of black Konig Airstrike 18x8 +45 with Sumitomo HTR Z III 215/40/R18 and they fit perfect with no rubbing and my fenders are not rolled however I drive an 04 6i so not sure if you would have an issue with rubbing on the wagon.
