18" rims on SE?

I am looking to get 18''Sparco Assetto Gara (white painted) rims on my 2012 SE. If I put the bigger rims on my car, can I still get coil overs and slam my car without any problems? And also is there anything else that I would have to do because the titanium has the titanium handling package?

18" wheels will fit, it's the width and offset you need to be mindful of.

The Handling Package wheels should be 18 x 8 +55.

For comparison I run 8" +46 and have no issues. If the new wheels are around that you should be fine.

Your definition of slam may different from others but if the plan is to immediately go low as soon as you get the wheels you will want to be really mindful of tire sizes. If you are going to stay on stock suspension for a little while I would stick to the stock 18" tire specs.

So if I get the h&r coil overs and drop it around 2", then what should I get for tires?

Just spent $2592.47 on the 18" white sparaco rims, h&r coil overs, and falken ziex ze-512 tires. I'll take pictures once they come in.
