18's fit without issue. hell, our cars came stock with an optional 18x7 wheel from the factory. there's no way to know if the ones your talking about will fit without knowing the offset for the wheels. thats the most important part. people have put as large as 20's on our cars though

Take the wheels of the car, and read/post the inscription that's on it. It should say something like 18x8 +xx (where xx indicates offset).

Then read the sticky that's on the 1st page of this forum subsection.
