Please Help - Looking to Buy New Wheels - Who is a Wheel Expert?

Okay, let me try at this again and see if someone can give me some advice or help me out.

I have a 2006 Accord Coupe stock suspension currently have 18" wheels on it w/ 225/45/18 Nexen tires but I am looking to buy some new wheels. Also, I will be getting my car lowered on TEIN Stech springs which I believe is 2" drop in the from and 1.2" drop in the rear.

What I found today is:

18" Staggered Stern ST-5
18x8.5 (f)
18x9.5 (r)
5x114.3 lug pattern
+32mm offset (f)
+35mm offset (r)
73.1mm hub bore

Question 1) Will these wheels fit?
Question 2) Will my current tires 225/45/18 fit on these wheels with my car lowered on TEIN springs?
Question 3) If not do you have any tire suggestions?
Question 4) Will I need to roll my front/rear fenders?
Question 5) Will I need front/rear camber kits?
Question 6) Would any other modifications be needed in order to make them fit?
Question 7) Would it be possible for me to fit a 8.5/f and 9.5/r staggered fitment in 19" on my vehicle?

I am trying to limit/eliminate rubbing and have a nice flush look if possible with no camber (i think that is right)

I think it may work but I wanted some validation and opinion from fellow Accord owners/enthusiasts.

I wonder what it would look like installed!!!!

Thanks in advance for the help.

Here is a teaser pic...let me know what you think.
