OEM wheels on front for square setup?

I didn't find anything on this in a search here. Wouldn't OEM 18 x 8.5 wheels work on the front? A 5mm spacer would take the offset from 52mm to 47mm and a 10mm spacer would net a 42mm. One of these would be darn close to 18 x 8.5 aftermarket wheels with 45mm offset.
