2003 wrx offset - what 18's n tyres will fit?

Have bought the wrong wheels for my car so sadly they are for sale again. I've a 2003 wrx and I believe the correct off set is 55mm?? It comes on standard wheels with 215/45/17. I want 18's that dont rub anywhere!!!! What have you got fitted to yours? Am thinking 225/40/18 would be the right size? If thats right whats the lowest offset ill get away with without any clearance issues? Ive seen lots of wheels with 35 - 45 mm offset for sale has anyone any experience of any of thses fitments firsthand. Dont wanna get it wrong twice. I will be grateful for any comments on this, good or bad experiences.

Thanks in advance

What I do to check is go to an alloy wheel web page like this below and key in the car details and it lists the correct fitments. Then you can check on the various offsets available that will fit.
Subaru Impreza WRX 18" Alloy Wheels Search Page 1 - Alloy Wheels - Specialist supplier of alloy wheels and tyres packages, Fast Delivery, Buy Online.
