Star Spoke 74-winter rim for 4.8IS??

Sorry for the noob Qs.

Will 18" Star Spoke 74 wheels fit my 06 4.8IS???? Looking for a winter set up. Thanks very much.

YMMV. There is only 1 approved rim - OEM that is stated that will clear the larger caliper on the 4.8is.

However, I recall past posting with others running replicas 18" on their 4.8is.

hey stalker, i am running the 18inch replica 87s with 255s on my 4.8 for the snow, they fit fine, but imo look a little small (used to the 20s). considering upgrading to a bigger winter set.
