The reason that I bought to wheels that I did was because I got them for almost nothing, I work at Discount Tire CO. and someone had them on their Ford Mustang but decided they did not want them anymore, so I got then 2 weeks used for $200 for all 4. They are only 16" but I am looking into getting 18" rims but I just dropped my car and I think it will rub. The tires are 225/50-16 Kumho Ecsta 711. They look relly good now because they are only two fingers distance between the fenderwell and it looks very clean and agressive.
I'm buying rims this week. I haven't decided on 17's or 18's yet. My car is riding on eibachs and kyb struts. You can get 18s without rubbing as long as you get the right tire size. I think you will be ok as long as you don't go any bigger than 225/40/18 or maybe 215/40.... I am leaning toward getting 17s with 225/45/17 tires so the ride doesn't get too harsh, but it is tough to pass up the look of 18s.
