Titanium wheels/tires on an SE

Too lazy to look it up..

Is it ok to put mk3 titanium sedan stock 18" titanium handling package wheels/tires right on a mk3 SE sedan with no problems? Is it the same size, fitment, and won't throw the odometer off?

I believe the overall diameter may be a little different, but that can be compensated for with reprogramming so the car knows it's on different wheels. It's done all the time at my work.

The only problem is your car won't have the Handling Package steering limiters so at full lock there may be contact.

Is this something the dealer does or do you work for an independent shop? I'd like to go from 16" wheels to 18" wheels.

How much do you guys charge for the reprogram? Just so I know for a reference when I go to have it done.
