They will most definetly fit. I've seen it with my own 2 eyes. Christopher @ Gt has his 18" O.Z's on H&R's & I just dumped mine w/Tein-S springs on 18's.

P.S
--- Here is the look you get Vs.stock

& heres how you feel

i've got rsr down springs (-1.2R, -1.8F) and the 18" rotas and it works fine. i also have a sedan, so keep that in mind. 225/40-18 is the standard tire size for these wheels probably.

with the correct offset ( 48mm - 53mm ) and the correct tire size ( 225/40-18 ) it will fit no problem

Would a 18x8's ET+48 or ET+50 w/ 225/40/18's fit on lowered wagons?
Or would it be best to opt for a 18x7 or 18x7.5 w/ the ET between ET+48- ET+50

i got the prodrive pff7s (18x8 et50) from a guy who used to have a wagon... he also had tein wagon coilovers, and with the 225/40s he never got any rubbing. and i think he lowered it quite a bit.
i think he said that if he had opted for 235/40s, it would have most likely rubbed...
