    front tire is the same size, but as said the rear is an 18" and yes a 200/18 fits and looks great. All the rotors will swap straight over, just use a dab of blue loctite and torque to specs
    Why is common sense not so common

    What is the advantage of the 18" over the 16" wheel? Or the advantage over the 16" over the 18" wheel? I know there are fewer car tires available for the 18" wheel, but other than that, does the ride or handling differer between the two?

    one may notice the F rear wheel a little better in turns because of the shorter sidewall but for the most part there is no difference other than they are harder to find a(18" vs the 16") tire when your out in the boonies found that out first hand.

    Nope don't fit at all - my sig states otherwise

    200/50-18 Metz fits real nice. 200/55-18 Avon is too tall and skinny. Both will work.

    I did my swap back in 2005 or so. The F wheels really make a C look its best.
