    I've got 18's on my SXi, fitted fine!

    and I'm going for a 60/40 drop soon, I've been assured it'll be fine, no rubbing etc but I'm not too sure.

    edit - forgot to say, the wheels are 18x7 and tyres are 215/35, car's lowered standard 20mm at the moment. (theres quite an arch gap, thats why I'm going for 60/40)

    Yep as everyone has said, it will go on without any mods needing done. I've lowered mines by 40mm and I have 18's

    if you get the correct offset you will not need to do any work at all!! ET42-49 that is with a 40mm drop all round.

    Has anyone had problems with 215 tyres on 18's as I have been advised to go with 225's as a minimum? Got told rims might catch tarmac if corner hard!?
