Anyone know how 18" ET 40 would fit on our car?

I guess they would just stick out 5mm more?

Sonic any pics of how far they stick out on the sides?

What size of rubber are you running?

those are exactly the style wheels I'd get. Just remember with +35, you'll definitely want front and rear camber adjustment.

I don't see a 40et in the correct bolt pattern. Only the 35et. You better double check before you purchase.
