Need Help! will these fit

Im looking at buying wheels that are 18x8.5 with a offset of 30.
The tires are 225/45
I am lowered on Ksport springs and my current ride height measured from fenders is 25' in both fronts and 26' for both rears. My question is will this setup work and will i have any rubbing going on ? if you have pictures id like to see how they look and how they fit. I would like to go lower in the feature on Ksport or BC coils.
Thanks for the help this is how she currently sits

To put things in perspective, I went to Rx8 rims which are 18x8 +50.
I am running 235/40s and I experienced rubbing on the rear, so I had the rear guards rolled and its been OK since.

I have Konis to go in, but this was all done on stock suspension.

My guess is that the +30s are going to cause a serious problem with rubbing especially at the rear.
Considering stock is +55 the offset changes is quite alot.
