As long as you have around a 45mm offset on the wheels you will be fine. The 215/40/18 is only 1/10th of an inch taller the the 215/45/17 that the SVT comes with and many people are running a much larger than 40mm drop on their SVT's.

I am running progress tech springs and have 18x7 wheels with 45mm offset and 215/35/18's. No rubbing at all and my next tire will be a 215/40/18. I have a svt which is about 3/4" lower than the zx3 from the factory.

but you have progress springs so you are just as low as any other focus with progress springs.
