I see. But those are the stock 18" wheels, right? Width-wise, I understand the look would be the same.

Yeah those are the stock 18s, but width and how it fills your wheel well will be similar

Specify if they are the early 2010 design that came on some 2013ís like mine, or the late style that came out in 2013 and on all 2014-15 SSís. I donít understand the logic with this 8Ē rear setup. I sure hope itís not trying to save 1/2 a mile per gallon and or save $100 per pair of rear tires going from 275 to 245ís.

But you are right - I have my mind made up, but was mostly concerned about spacers. I don't want the 8" wheel/tire combination to look too "narrow" in the fat rear fender wells.
Then do what everyone suggested and go 9" square.

honestly and just my two cents/ stick to your current factory wheels/
by going with a 20x8 you will not be gaining anything in fact you may loose car performance in general daily driven situations.
I mean consider this,

a new 2018 front wheel drive Honda civic uses 20x8.5 wheels.
this is a front wheel drive car/ 4cyl/ awesome car but ahh h
never mind, is your car and if you want 20x8 you do 20x8 buddy. youll be fine.

The RS and SS stock wheels are:

20x8" front with 35mm offset
20x9" rear with 40mm offset

The difference in offset is 5mm which is about .2", but the difference in wheel width is .5" per side. So the rear tires, if you go with a square setup on 8" wheels, will be .3" into the fenders from the stock setup. (.5" minus .2" equals .3")

BTW, the Gen6 RS cars have a square setup with 245 tires (unlike Gen5 RS V6 cars which have the same stagger as SS), and they look pretty good. But the staggered look is better, IMO.

The 18x8 steel wheels depicted on the red car in this thread have a 38mm offset, which splits the difference.
