ST Rims on an SE?

Hi guys, I'm a prospective Focus owner here and was wondering about upgrading the wheels on an SE. I like the look of the ST wheels but the SE price fits the budget better. Wondering if I bought the ST 18" wheels off ebay would they directly fit on an SE without modification?

Thanks!

You do realize that the ST has 18" rims and the SE comes stock with 16" with 17" optional?
You will need a set of 235/40-18 tires too.

There are always multiple sets of ST wheels for sale on focusst.org. Look to pay about $400+shipping for rims only.

Doesn't the Titanium and the ST with the 18" wheels have some kind of stop on the steering rack to keep the wider wheels from hitting the inner wheel wells when turning? Wouldn't an SE owner have to incorporate some kind of stop as well otherwise the wider wheels will rub the wheel wells?

225/40/R18 will do the job right
