Plug in the stock 18" specs on the left, and yours on the right, and you can see how much closer/further things are to both the outside of the car and the inside fender liner, along with speed variation, etc etc.

Tires don't get you flush - width and offset of the wheels (or spacers, if you want to go that route) do. Tires might have larger or smaller shoulders, but that impacts more if you'll rub or not.
