The wheels will fit fine. I ran a set of 18x8 ET +38 with 235/40/18 tires. Below are some photos of what that looked like for your reference. My car was at stock height in the photos. Your setup would have 5mm less on each side of the tire. The wheels you have will stick out 3mm further than the ones in the photo. For help on finding out how a wheel will fit on your car refer to http://www.1010tires.com/WheelOffsetCalculator.asp. If you plan to lower your car there is a possibility for the front tires to rub on the inner fender. This will of course depend on how much you lower the car. I didn't have any problems with the tires rubbing at stock height. When I lowered the car with Megan Coilovers I only had minor rubbing under hard cornering or large bumps at speed.

Thanks for your quick reply.The photo s off your car are great.That is the look i am searching for.Besites fitting are there issues with steering or less comfort ?

There aren't any issues with steering. The larger wheel and tire combo is less comfortable than the ride of the stock tires and wheels. What is lost in comfort is made up in improved handling. The difference in ride comfort was minimal to me.

Personally I think 225 45 18 are the best choice, the fill the wheel well pretty nice, with no issues. Their is going to be to much wheel gap. Plus you probably won't like how they ride. Or next choice would be 235 45 17's

When i got heavy load or a caravan on the back still no problems with the wheels and the fenders at the back?(cause its so wide)And De Melo,the wheels and tires are one set ,so its 225-40-r18 otherwise i have to sell extra tires besides them.But you think its ganna be to bumpy riding?

No you wont have issues, but I will be a little bit harsh.

mm i am busy with a new set of 17 inchers 225-45-r17. I really like the look off the 18 inch rims but as you told its get really bumpy.Overhere the put everywhere bumps in the street ,so everybody needs to drive slower.With the sx4 on 16 inchers you don t feel a thing when you drive over it.So the 17 inchers could be the perfect compromis between looks and comfort,i think.
