    To fit 18" to a MK3 you'll have to do some work on the arches.

    They will fit with no arch mods.

    Well, I fitted 7.5x18s ET45 last summer, Mk3, and I needed to roll the rear arches about 5mm to prevent rubbing. Lowered 40 upfront, 35 in the rear.
    Tyres 215/35 Falken.

    These are 7.5x18s ET49 and my car is not lowered just on standard gsi suspension so should be ok by the looks of it.

    Anyone got any pics of mk3 with 18" wheels on?
