Hey Bro
You probably already gone and bought some but I like to think I can help out with info if I have it or have seen it. The allow wheels direct site (alloywheelsdirect.net) shows the 18 x 8.5 offset 44 is okay with 255/45/R18. The ones you mention are not as wide or as high so can't see any problem there. I ran the figures over the rimsntires.com site and they showed the following for the front's (using the 255/45/R18 as being setup that fits okay) and your size says :
Speedometer
When speedometer reads 60mph (96.6km/h) actual speed will be 57mph (91.8km/h): 5% slower.

Clearance:
Suspension 100% clear (leaves even more room than OEM)
Fenders 100% clear (leaves even more room than OEM)
Wheelwells 100% clear (leaves even more room than OEM)

The standard fitment doesn't show 18x9.5's but does show 19x9.5's approved by AMG waering 285/35/R19's. Assuming that this "fits" then your proposed rear config will also fit but with some speedo variation also.

Be interested to hear if you did go with them and had any problems
