There was an up! on 18" wheels at Woerthersee last year. You'll need quite a bit of stretch as the narrowest adaptors for 4x100 to 5x112 are 20mm taking your 8" wide wheels to ET25. I had 7.5" wheels on ET23 and they poked out of the arch about 10mm, so you'll poke about 15mm.

The problem you will have will be the lack of narrower tyres in 18" sizes in the UK. The narrowest 'common' size is 205/35R18, which will not fit the tread inside the arch. You can get a 165/35R18, they are rare, and they will be far too stretched on an 8" wide wheel.

Thanks for the help! think tires are 225s. maybe i could get a custom adaptor with less of a spacer affect.
