the XXR 521s will require a spacer up front...maybe a 20mm...to clear the brembos.
They (18x10) will also stick out quite a bit IMO. The 8.5" will fit a lot better but might not have the same aggressive look you might be seeking...I did see another pic of an evo 8/9 with 8.5" 521s and they were not bad!
There are a few threads on XXR wheel fitment questions around....I looked for a minute for you but only found the unofficial Evo X XXR Wheel fitment thread....I know I've seen a couple for the 8/9 evos...

Your XXR 521's will fit WITHOUT spacers up front and in the rear. My rear fenders are rolled, but they wouldn't rub anyway. My fronts are aftermarket fenders, but I would say a roll up front would be needed. Without spacers, they fit flush all around, almost perfect. I'm lowered about 1" from stock which leaves about an inch of wheel gap. Tires are 245/40/18 on the XXR 521 18x8.5 +25
Hope that helps.
