Not positive, but I think factory offest is +42 on your car. So it should be ok for the 18X7.5 but the 8.5 might be too wide. I'd just call a wheel or tire shop and ask. They should be able to tell you

2006 LS coupe, tint, 18'' DR9 wheels, Eibach Sportlines, 12'' rockford sub w/600w rockford comp amp, alarm and so much more to come.

8.5 in 38 should be fine. an 8" wheel should be able to clear in any offset between 45 and 35 hope this helps.

35 moves the wheel further out, so an 8.5 would be fine.

keep in mind this is a 19" wheel however...
