Yes, Those Would Indeed Be The Sizes That I Would Suggest Using With Those Wheels.

I'm running 8.5 and 9.5 in the back and am running 235/40/18 265/35/18 offset is unkown since forgestar doesn't release it but it runs flush to the fender. I think that should be perfectly fine set up. 225/40/18 and 255/35/18 is perfectly fine that's what came stock with my car.

Your offsets are different from mine (mine are like 40f 42r or something, vmr vb3 csl) but Im running 225/255 on my 18x8.5f and 18x9.5r on stock sport suspension with no problems. .

Despite The Fact That Your Car Is A Sedan, These Would Likely Still Fit With No Problem. However With The Car Lowered It Will Be Close In The Rear With A Wheel With That Low Of An Offset, So Be Sure To Test Fit Before Driving On Them.
