Clearance on 18x8.5 +38mm wheels. Any rubbing?

Do i have enough clearance without rub?
Want: work emotion CR ultimate 18x8.5 5x100 +38mm
got an 04 wrx lowered on prodrive blue springs. Stoptech bbk (front 332x32, rears 328x28). I'm pretty confident the wheels will clear the brakes, but wanted to know if there will be enough clearance without rubbing. Or, will i need to roll the fenders?
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

Depends on many factors including what size tire you want to run. Assuming you got the BBK out of necessity, you may want to consider a smaller diameter wheel for performance purposes unless they will hit your calipers.

Yes, you will rub when you turn, or hit a bump.

Yes, you will need a roll, but shouldnt need a pull...
