Yes

Generaly aftermarket wheels come with a standard oversized Hub( vary by manufacturer), but thats why they have rings you can buy to fit the specific wheel to the car.

18x7 will look funny on the mk3, sunken in, skinny, with a thin tire, what can be more disguisting, NO OFFENSE.

i was attacked by adware while i was writing this post yesterday and didn't get to finish it.
the wheels are made for FF cars(coming off an 02 Altima).
the only thing that worries me is the center bore(which i haven't been able to find for the enkies) and the fact that they're for a FF. anyway....the D side wheels are bent on my car and i can get these relatively cheap which brings me to another ??? how much are they worth used ($125.00 ea new)? 2 of the tires are at the TWI's. i was thinking around $400.00-$450.00 for the set.

how are the enkies going to look sunken in and skinny? the factory sawblades that are on the car now are 16x7 X245/50 tires the enkies are 18x7 X225/40
so I'll be giving up a little on the overall diameter(wheel+sidewall) and its hard to tell the width by just standing one wheel beside the other but it looks like the 18's are about a 1/8 inch thinner(width) than the 16's
I took some pic W/ my camera but i seem to have some problems converting them for what ever reason so here is what they look like( if this link works)

18x7 +40 = Sunken in. Forget about tire size for now. Think about it this way, instead of upgrading width wise your upgrading height wise even though you are going to maintain your stock wheel aspect ratio( at least i hope so) the wheel will not look right. now add the tires, they are going to be lower pros so they will enhance the skinny look.

It is pointless to change your wheels and go with 7inch width. That is just plain rice

What the hell, i rather have 16x7 with wide tires then 18x7 with smaller tires. Should have gotten atleast a 8.5 or 9in.

why not go with a nice light weight 16x7 since your NA. you ca put some nice tires too. i know those perticular enkies are light but why add the additional rotating mass, especially if your not adding any more power.
like NJsupramk3tb said IS RICE
