18's will fit fine, but 45mm offset is a bit too far under the fenders. If you get them, you may need some spacers to push them out. Try to find some rims with 34 to 37mm offset.

With an 18 x 9" rim I would not vary much from the OEM 34mm offset. There is not much clearance (12mm) in front between the tire and strut/spring. I went with a 40mm offset on a 17x 8" Beyern rim and have very little clearance left (6mm). So far I have not had any problems

Use the calculator above and input the specs on the wheels you are interested in and measure your clearance with your stock setup so you know what you started with.
