I think they will fit with spacers, but please get other opinions I may be wrong.

I know for a fact mine are
5 x 130 bolt pattern
8.5 front and 10 rear wide rims

The offset is where i think it may be an issue mine are
ET47 Front and ET56 Rear
And I don't require a spacer.
Yours are only 1 mm different so you may be ok with out a spacer.

Good luck....someone who is positive please chime in.

Whoa!!

I did not see they where 18x8

I don't think you want 8's all around.
I would not buy these at all.
