sorry for the late reply but with no offset info, you can't really tell if they'd fit. the width is fine, you can run 265s in the back.
since they fit all those other pcars, you'd probably need spacers. which is not what you'd ideally want.
you probably already know all this now

you would just need a 5/16th spacer in the back, thats all.
those appear to be the same ones i have, sold by eurotech.
not all that good of a customer service, but good wheels non the less.
im running a 275 on the back wheel.

measuring side to side, they ended up being 11 not a 10, but thts expected.
good luck. they are definitely nice wheels, i get compliments on mine all the time

DJ,
With the move up to 18s, did you notice the car being a bit more sluggish or handling any heavier due to the bigger/wider wheels? I know on another board, a fella who bought some replica 18 inch lobster fork wheels said he noticed the car handled worse with the 18s than with the 17s which he said the car felt more nimble with, and better on the track.
