Will Stock 18s fit

Does anybody know if the stock oem 18s will fit the front 6 piston calipers on our cars? I can get 2 for cheap and thinking of using 2 upfront as a drag setup (I know not a drag cars haha) since the height matches my current rear drag setup.

I'm assuming you both are running 245/50/18 tires front and rear on these wheels. I'd like to do the same setup for winter tires. Are you having any issues with traction control, ABS, or any other nannies getting confused by the equal tire diameters?

I've been running 245/50/18 square for the past two winters with no issues. Tons of people run a square setup on the track as well without problems.

Thanks. That's what I figured, because there is only 0.4" difference in diameter between the stock front and rear tires anyway...and because obviously the base models run same-size tires front and rear all the time. There's just always that one person that says even the slightest change will trip up the nannies.

Do you know if that setup would also work on a 1LE?

Considering that they're on a 1LE, yes I'd say it probably would work.

Found a set of OEM 18s for dirt cheap plus Xice tires in 255/50/18. Any issues running these tires over the 245s with the OEM 18s?
