With no drop and 225/40/18 or 235/35/18's you will be fine.

It will be close though. I had 18x8 ET22 (with 225 tires) and it rubbed a bit. Your setup is only 2mm narrower but it should be enough.

My 18x8 ET25's have never once rubbed. Stock non-sport suspension, on 225/40/18's all round.

We'll see how it responds after the coilovers are installed.
