It depends. There a member at FxTreme that has 18's with Intrax (2" drop) springs on. He said there is a little rubbing when you go around corners and stuff, but it's not too bad. I, myself have 19's, but I have an adjustable suspension. They're just my show rims.
If you decide not to lower your car any, you can install 18's without too many issues. Basically any size rim can fit, as long as you get the right offset.
Good luck! <img src=icon_smile_cool.gif border=0 align=middle>
yup i got teh 18's on intrax springs, and it drives okai, 18s fit and look great, im telling you, if 18's are beatuful, but i got intrax springs adn they suck ass, so having 18s isnt a godo idea on those springs. 18s fit nice and will rub sometimes, but the reason im taking my 18s off, is cause i dont like my springs, on stock height, 18s should be perfect
One thing you have to remember is there can not be more than a %5 difference in tire size from stock. It will mess a lot of things up. If you want to run with 18's you might have to cut some of the wheel well.
use this to figure out what tire/wheel combo you can go with.
In theory, if you could do a 215 30 tires on 18" wheels and keep the speedo the same and not rub even with a drop...but ride quality on 30 tires would be fairly harsh.
You could also fit 215 20 tires on 20" wheels with no rubbing problems with a drop. Just good luck finding 215 20 20 tires! *laugh*
You can go with any tire size that keeps the speedo the same, and does not vary tire width wider than 215. 225's will rub, but 215's are okay with a drop. Wheel offset is also a factor. Stock offset is +42.
