Am I mistaken??
You can run 18" wheels without any issues, but that's a really vague statement. 18" wheels will range in size, could be 18x7 to 18x12 for example, and then you have to factor in the offset of the wheels.

We recommend 18x8.5 ET35 to ET40 front, and 18x9.5 ET45 rear for a staggered setup. Your wheels would stick out about 6-11mm further than our recommended specs up front, and about 4mm further out in the rear. If you are not planning on running a stretched tire you will likely need to roll your fenders.
