After entering our stock xB data (205/55-16 x 6.5 w/ 45 offset) and the Mitsu wheels with 225/40/18 rubber, the Comparer tool at
Custom rims, wheel tire packages for your ride - RIMSnTIRES.com says:
- Package 2 is 3 mm (0.1'') closer (than stock) to suspension/brakes components. Acceptable for most cars.
- Package 2 will stick out 17 mm (0.7'') farther (than stock). Make sure that you have enough room under the fender. If not, consider narrower tires or higher offset.
- Will fill out the wheelwell by extra 3 mm. Almost no difference
- When speedometer reads 60mph (96.6km/h) actual speed will be 60.5mph (97.4km/h): 0.8% faster.

My guess is it won't be too much different than what you are running now. I'm running 225/50-16 x 7 w/ 40 offset and the tool predicts my package sticking out +15mm over stock. I'm on NF210s and have never rubbed fenders. If you are not deeply dropped you should clear OK.
