Default Will these rims fit my car??

I want to get a set of rims from ADR they are called the Version II and 2 rims in the set com in at 18x8--225/40/18 and the second one come in at 18x9--245/40/18 my question is if i get a set of rims with 2 being different width will that be bad for my car in terms of the differential and will it hurt it in terms of performance cause its 2 different size rims on a awd system. oh by the way adr sends the rim out like that with 2 being different size from the other i gues so the rear wheel has more weight i gues for when you drop the clutch you don;t spin your tires and if you want to see what the rims look like go to wheelmax.com and go to adr and it should be the first set of wheels on the left called "Version II"... ANd can some one send me a site were they have a good set of rims and why does the offsetting have to be more the 50 why can;t they be 4o like these???

NO!

On an AWD car all tires MUST be the exact same size, period.

No they won't fit. The offset is too low and you will have rubbing issues, along with probably killing your AWD system. The offset is how your wheel is centered and you should try to stay within 48-52 or something like that.

Um, offset was not noted in the post... the 40 in 225/40/18 is the aspect ratio of the sidewall of the tire to the the width of the tire. Offsets are either + and an integer, - and an integer, or zero . What you have there is tire dimensions . Get the offset of the rims and then we can better let you know if they will fit. However, as noted above, you cannot have two different sized sets of tires or rims on the car- all 4 must match.
