If you want to do 35 profile ratio, you'll need to move up to 18 inch wheels unless you want your speedometer to be pretty far off. Your DSC won't work well either. Stock tire size is 225/45/17.

This diagram should explain a good bit to you about wheel sizing.

You should try to get at least 40mm positive offset, then if they don't fit you can just buy spacers. If you get too low of an offset you may end up having a wheel that sticks out beyond the body. Since you're going for flush, you want to get the wheel offset so it is still inside the fender, then after you put the wheels on, you can measure for spacers.

The wheels you picked will probably fit fine, but you may need spacers to get them away from the suspension components.
