New Wheels question

I found a set of wheels on CL that i am thinking about buying to run next summer since i sold my last summer set. They are Mille Miglia 18x8 et40 18x9 et20. I plan on running either 10/12mm spacers for the front. But my real question is about the rears. What is the max neg camber i can run on stock arms? I am lowered on H&R sport cup kit. Here is a pic of the car last summer with 18x8 et30 in the rear. And a pic of actual wheels i want to grab. What you think ill need to make it work?

That sizing in the rear is way more aggressive than I'd recommend for your car. You're going to need to do a good amount of fender work in the rear, plus negative camber, plus stretched tires to fit something like that. That amount of work is going to vary depending on your exact setup though, so it's impossible for someone to give you a surefire answer to your questions (with the exception of the camber question perhaps).
