HELP!!Wheel fitment for my MS6,rota grid

HEY,GUYS

I am looking to buy a set of Rota Grid for my speed6 in summer,but the only 18inch they make with a low ET is 18X9.5 et38 or et20,it looks so sexy on those cars but I really don't have the clue that if this gonna fit in my Mazdaspeed6 06 or not,I saw a lot of threads talking about this but somesay it fit(just need fender rolled and no rub at all),somesay it fit but take a lot of work(rolled and pulled),others just say it's stupid to put those on cuz it rubs like shit~

So i don't know what i should do about this but i really like those rims,so anyone can help me here?

I have a H&R Coilovers and right now it's just sit mid way.

Basicly if it just need a fender rolling and no rub while driving without someone sit in rear i think i would buy this,so any suggestion and advice?

My MS6 and 240 lol:

They will rub big-time and no amount of roll will fix it. For reference here is a pic of 18x10, +40 with the suspension lowered to the point where the tires hit. Also the car is setup with -2.5deg of camber at all four corners. If you do the math, the outside lip of your proposed wheels are only 0.17" futher inboard than the wheels pictured below.

Rear:



You need more offset to run 18x9.5s.
