Will a VMR V703 18" 9.5 inch with 265 rears fit

I have a 2011 with sport suspension. I've read there are issues with offsets, but also read a 265 should fit without rubbing. Really like the look of these wheels and found a decent deal online. Has anyone run this wheel a 265 and know if there will be rubbing issues? I wouldn't totally be against pulling the fenders, a more aggressive look isn't a bad thing. Also being sold with an 8.5" with 245's up front. Thanks in advance!

These would most certainly rub in both front and rear. Do you know what offsets you're looking at?

What offset?

I run
18x8.5 +38 225/40
18x9.5 +43 245/35

On Bilstein B12 pro and have zero issues with rubbing, even when I had me+sister+2 kids+luggage in the trunk on the highway. Where the front fender meets the bumper inside the wheel well, theres a small tab - I trimmed it. The bolt is still inside and secure, I just took off as much meat as I could. I didn't put too much effort into checking but I'm pretty sure I can fit 255 out back no issue.
