Not positive, but I think factory offest is +42 on your car. So it should be ok for the 18X7.5 but the 8.5 might be too wide. I'd just call a wheel or tire shop and ask. They should be able to tell you

8.5 in 38 should be fine. an 8" wheel should be able to clear in any offset between 45 and 35 hope this helps.

8.5 +35 up front

9.5 +45 in the rear. Waaaay to wide in the rear, +30 or +25 would have been better in the rear.

well im thinking about getting a 8.5 35+ up front and a 9.5 35+ in rear would that fit?

and also arent your fenders rolled? or am i thinking of someone else?
Try to avoid anything bigger than 8.5. My 19's rub like a mofo in the rear, and it's really not safe to drive the way they do.

Nope, my fenders are the way the came from the factory. I actually don't have clearance issues on the fenders, just the fender lining. The wheels are simply so wide, they don't fit in the wheel well. Now, my friend John has made it work with 17's, but that's a whole different story.
