Rim and tire size suggestions

So I recently just put some 18 inch rims on layaway for my 2010 Chevy Cobalt sedan LS so I can have them for the spring I'm a little bit iffy about the size of the rims cuz they seem too big to me because I originally have 15s but with the style that I wanted they only came in 18s or higher. I have a 4x100 bolt pattern so I really don't have alot of options to choose from that I like. I was wondering if anyone has any pics of 18s on their car

Yeah, 18s will fit fine. I'm pretty sure MP's got some 18s on his LS. If you want to keep the overall diameter of the tire close to stock, you'd need some pretty low profile tires, but you should be able to find them just fine.

18in rims are stock on the ss tc so there's no question the rim will fit.

Yep - 18x8 with a 225/40R18. Let me find a picture.

Plenty of room. And I want to say it has about 5mm less positive offset than the SS/TC wheels, so it pushed them out just a touch farther, which looks even more muscular.

Oops, LT, not LS.

I'll never get tired of seeing that thing though.
