Question Need to make sure

Hi guys, this is my first post on this site although I've been on here quite a few times for help with other things or questions I've had. I tried to search around but couldn't find a clear answer for my question. I am looking to buy a set of wheels for the spring/summer and I'm pretty set on Enkei Raijin wheels but according to tire rack they would require fender modification to fit. The specs are 18x8 with 45mm offset, I'd be running them with a set of Potenza S-04 Pole Position (225/40R18) tires. They also come in a 40mm offset version if that would make it better. I just want to make sure I know what I'm getting into before I drop a grand on wheels. I'm totally new to aftermarket wheels as this will be the first car that I don't have stock wheels but I just really don't want to roll fenders on my car. Also, the car is stock height with stock suspension. Thanks for the help!

There's an entire thread here for this, but I'm feeling helpful since it's Friday.

+52.5 it's stock offset at +45 you should be fine with a tire that is similar to stock.

I ran a +48 245/40/17 without issue on coilovers.
