You would need to know the exact size and offset, plus I'd be concerned of the quality of the rims themselves. There are good and bad in replica rims. I personally would prefer a rim type from the OEM range for the car, but obviously will cost more if you can find a used set.

It is a difficult shout, as to what solution is going to give you what you want. Will an 18" non run-flat improve the ride quality enough over rough roads? Rim weight and tyre specification could be as critical as size and a move to a non run-flat.

Plus the comment in the other thread, "it's smoother, but not 1200 worth smoother".
