Default help with wheels, offset and tire size

So, I thought I'd get more help here because I tried the regular mazda 3 forums and quite honestly, I'm in a different gear than most of those folks.

I'm a long-term Evo guy, I have an Evo 9. I also have a 2012 Mazda 3 (naturally aspirated 2.5, automatic transmission) not the speed-3.

My factory wheels are 17x6.5. According to what I see online they are 43mm offset. Factory tires are 205/50/17.

I just put new wheels on my Evo, and I was going to powdercoat the factory Evo 9 BBS wheels and put them on the Mazda3. From what I understand the wheel fitment is the same for the 3 and speed3.

The car is not lowered, and is on the factory suspension. I am much older than most of you (probably) so I don't intend on doing this for any reason other than looks. To me the mazda 3 is more of a comfort car. I do really like the look of the Evo 9 BBS wheels, and I think they will look great in gold on my sky-blue 3.

Factory Evo BBS is 17 x 8, 38 offset.

I was curious if I could get your feedback on this idea. There will be no fender rolling or body modifications at all.
