I've probably read every post on this forum including the epic 145pg "Tires and wheels that are proven to fit" thread. But have the chance to pick up a 2nd hand set of winter tires/rims and want to see if folks think there would be any issue. Specs are in the title but here they are again:

Tire: 235/60/18 Hankook winter Pike RW11(2 seasons old but look ok in photos)
Wheel: 7.5 jx18 ET 45 Aluminum rims 5x114.3 supposedly from an Acura

Any thoughts/concerns? The price is $500 for all 4. Thanks!
Sorry, check that, the rims are actually bigger:

8x18 35mm offset. Seller was mistaken and I didn't double check until home....at this point just going to see what tire shop has to say.

FYI for any others looking. I was able to utilize the wheels and tires. Tire shop said they did not see any issue with rubbing etc... They drive great so far. Car seems more "stable" with the 8" width perhaps. On top of that, they look pretty good too. Again, to recap the specs:

2015 Outback 3.6r
wheel: 18x8 ET38mm center bore 73.1mm
tire: 235/60/18 Hanook winter

no tpms, I'm fine with light. I purchased plastic hub rings 73.1mm -> 56.1 for $7 that work great and a set of lugs 12mm x 1.25mm. Links to items below:
