R33, will these wheels fit?

Got hold on some 18x10" Desmond Wise Sports wheels.
Offset is +18. He has 245/35-18 tyres on them.
Will they fit my R33?

Pictures of the wheels:

Yes it's a GTR, with Bilstein PSS9 coilovers.

R33 GTR wheels are ET30, ET 18 in 10j should fit no problem
I run ET20 on both my 32's

Sorry to Hi-Jack

Sorry for jumping on this thread but seemed a waste to add another post when this was available.

I've just wrecked one BBS LM-SLD 18" alloy so 3 are for sale and dont want to pay £695 for 1 alloy without tyre. However I need to replace them and the hole tyre/alloy/offset area is a nightmare.

So here's the alloy ive picked

Bola B1 - LK Performance

18x9.5 ET30 with 265/35/r18 tyres

will these fit on a lowered (but adjustable) R33 GTR

Thanks

Allright, will the wheels fill out the wheel arch with that setup?
I think the Desmond wheels will look quite good on the R33

As integra said, lower ET to play it safe.

I've never heard of Bola wheels so couldn't comment on the quality.

Cheers for the replies, been on to lk performance and they're recommending 18x8.5 et 30 235/35 front and 18x9.5 et30 275/35 rear does this sound sensible and ok for handling?

Theyre totally wrong. Sounds like they dont know what theyre on about. Be careful!
It needs to be a square set up and GTRs swallow wide wheels. 9.5 at least, et20 ish

Now I've heard of Japan Racing wheels so much a better choice.

You MUST have the same width wheels at the front as the back, ie: Don't get staggered wheels if you have a GTR

At 18x9.5 with an offset of 22 you will be fine :-)

So no chance of them touching the Brembo calipers?
