Will these wheels/tires fit?

I'm looking at options for new wheels for my 05 Elise, non sport pacakage. I think Konig's new Freeform wheels would look quite good on an Elise: https://konigwheels.com/wheels/flow-...eels/freeform/ Think these would fit? What size spacers would I need, if any? This would be mostly street use, occasional non-competitive autocross/track day.

Here's the sizes I thinking of:

Front: 15x8, 25mm offset, 225/45R15 tires

Rear: 17x8, 45mm offset, 235/45R17 tires

The fronts will fit with a very small spacer to clear the steering arm. The rears will need like 14mm? Just off the top of my head.

No idea about the front, but the rear spacer will depend on the inner wheel design. It's possible you wouldn't need any spacer at all, as it's only 7mm off of stock.
