Sedan or wagon?

If sedan 18x8 + 48 will work with a 235-40-18 - 18x8.5 + 48 will also work but you may have to remove the rubber seals on the rear wheel opening. There are other options, the above are just 2 I know will work just fine.

matters on the rim offset. If it's 48 or more, you should be ok with 235/40/18. If it's 40-48, you probably want to stick with 225/40/18. If it's less than that, you will probably rub no matter what tire you pick.
