215's are typically put on a 7.5" wheel. But, an 18" is usually an 8". If it's an 8" wheel, you need around a +40mm offset to fit.

Are the wheels 5 x 110 bolt pattern?

****
Edit-Tenzo doesn't make anything in 5 x 110..I see that guy posted they are "universal" 5-bolt, but they arent...they are 5 x 100/5 x 114.3
