Can anyone verify the offset on the 18x8 wheels is 45mm? I know Ford limits the steering range on the 18s because of issues with the size of these wheels in the wells.

I may be looking into getting a set of 18x8s with a 49mm offset, and with a higher offset I feel like it'd be even more of an issue with the wheels/tires hitting suspension parts or the fender liner. I'd be running 225/40 tires, though, so maybe that'd help. If this turns out to be a headache then I'll stick with 17s, but with the ST getting 18s from the factory I wonder how they're gonna do it.
