    i suspect it will foul the rear suspension upright at the top (you can barely get your finger in there with standard 17") although depending on the actual tyre profile (varies with brand) you may get away with it, i wouldnt think you would need anything more than a 5mm spacer, if you require one at all.

    Trial fit required.

    Yep, but that 10mm of space is what is needed, it is very very tight at that top upright. as i say, you might get away with it depending on the profile of the tyre.

    225/40/18 is what you want.
    As for the ET, I'm not sure.

    I'm running ET35 on 18x8.5 with out any issues.
