I think it will work. The offset is a little low, but definitely not bad for a 18x8. 235/35/18 is a pretty short tire, so it also gives you less chace for rubbing. Just watch out for potholes! Oh, and are you on stock suspension?

Do they have the correct bolt circle diameter and hub-centering pilot diameter?

Oh yeah, very good questions. Should be 5x100 and at least 56.1 hub bore. If they have a hub bore greater than 56.1, you'll need hub rings.

Hubcentric rings are a very debated topic. basically no weight is carried on the hub, even with the correct bore diameter. Think about it, the tollerance out have to be so high that the machining of each (the hub, the wheel bore, and the lug holes) would have to be PERFECT. Point is, the weight is carried out on the wheel bearings...NOT the lug studs because tapered lug nuts center the wheel over a given stud, making it not carry the car weight, but transfering it to the wheel bearings.

This is why most hubcentric rings are PLASTIC or some sort of composite.
Its insignificant to use hubcentric rings, in all honesty.
