I've decided on some wheels for my car, a 2008 LT. It has stock the 16" wheels

Will I have any problems with my new choice of wheels?

I want American Racing Casino Chrome 18's. PN# AR6838891
Specs are:
18x8
5x115
offset +40
backspacing 6.07"

And Some Yokohama YK580 255/45R18 Tires.

Any Problems you guys know of with the set I want? I saw struts may be a problem, but if it is, I'll get new ones.

Car is a 2008 LT with 3.5L engine, 16" stock rims.

Thanks Fellas!
Kenny

Tires might be a tad wide. I don't know whether they'd rub or not, but stock 8th gen 18" tire size is 235/50

Whats the stock 18" wheel width? I got a feeling its 7" If it is i may have to get another wheel, as the ones i want are onlyin an 8" width, and i hate too skinny tires on a wheel.

If this doesnt work out i may find a set of ltz takeoffs or something... id like to change as little as possible to make the wheels fit. So to besafe shoul try tofind 18x7 wheels?

Im not worried about having fat tires, just stock looking sizes, in chrome. I still want the car to function normally. I have enough to remember with my truck, i wantthis car to be as normal and idiot proof aspossible...

Im typing all this on my new tablets screenkeyboard, so there may be spaces missing and such. I dont want tocorrect all these errors so bear withme please...lol

I believe that stock width is 7" HOWEVER, donmateo has this set on his 7th gen. I would imagine that if they fit a 7th gen, they'd fit an 8th gen.

You can always get some wheels spacers to push the wheels out a little farther, allowing you to run wider wheel/tire combos.
