Offset is relative to width of Rim. An 8" wheel with et50 will not be the same as 7" wheel on et50. The offset is the measurement from the centre of the wheel to the face that bolts to the hub.

Et50 on a 7"(177mm)Rim leaves you with 138.5mm back of the hub towards strut and 38.5mm stick out from the hub towards the edge of wing. 8" (203mm) would be 151.5mm towards the strut and 51.5mm away from hub. Offsets are always awkward and confusing.

Good place to check your new setup is here: http://www.willtheyfit.com/  I have XXR527s 18x8.75 ET20 on my wagon with 15mm spacers, my friend has 18x9.75 ET20 also on a wagon, we both have flares. I don't think its possible to fit them without. Maybe 8.75 ET35 on a saloon with rolled arches and a bit of camber.

Xxr are a cheap alloy , expect issues / bent rims 

Yes, if you keep driving in to curbs or flying over pot holes ;) Wheel on the pic took straight hit from another car that bent my wishbone. Not bent, not cracked, just some normal damage.
