i think they will fit as far as lug fitment, but they will poke really bad in the rear. you will need some heavy fender rolling and pulling of the rear fenders... unless you find all four fronts...

Are you lowered? If so, on what?


Those wheels will work just fine. I'd recommend a 225/40/18 tire on all four corners and rolled fenders. The fenders do not need to be pulled and just a regular fender roll will suffice. Not sure why people recommend heavy fender rolling. Either roll them all the way up or not, don't waste your money of a "half-roll" job.
