Against the grain: high offset wheels

Everyone tends to look for the lowest offset the car will allow, but I'm wondering if anyone have experience with higher offset wheels. Looking at the following specs:

Size: 18x9 squared
Offset: 47mm
Tires: 235-245/40/18

I'll also be at stock x-drive height.

Is there enough space on the inside of the wheel well to accommodate, or would I start rubbing at full lock or would I be hitting the strut? Spacer's an option I guess, but not looking to be hella flush.

Thanks!

Hard to say no to free stuff. He's hours away though, so I'd rather have an educated guess before driving that far.

I've also done the low offset, camber and fender rolling thing in previous car and I've outgrown all of that I guess.
