Yes, they should fit. I believe the factory setup with those wheels is 225/40R18 front and 255/35R18 rear. If you stick with those tire sizes you shouldn't have any problems at all.

They'll fit.

However, I'd recommend running 10mm spacers front and rear. Those are relatively conservative offsets. I'm running 18x8.5 et35 front and rear.

I'm assuming they're style 135's (from ZHP package)? If so, just search for ZHP pictures here and you'll know exactly what they'll look like. They'll definitely fit.

I meant on the car. Plus you can kinda eyeball the offsets. Glad you like them.
