    yes non problem... at least for most tires.
    In my case, i have 4x C6 18x10.5 w/ 315/30-18 on all corners Nitto NT-01.
    The specs on the tires stipulate to be mounted on wheels of 10.5-11.5 width... so the tire is well mounted.

    i just received them ... and they aren't mounted on the wheels yet.
    from what i've read... it performs better than the 555RII

    for the rear... I'll be using a 1/4" spacer.
    In the front, a 1/2" spacer... but you can get away w/ less in the front.
    I basically wanted the wheels to stay more or less @ same location as my present 17x11... with a bit more clearance on each side... for no issues whatsoever.
    not that the 17x11 +50mm work well w/ 1/4" spacer in front... none in back

    You will have to measure the width of the tire when it gets mounted. The 315/35-17 are narrow compared to other manufacturers so I am curious if this is still the case with there latest competition tire.

    i'm presently on Yoko A032R tires... based on their spec sheet, the 315/35-17 has the following (mounted on 17x11):
    overall width: 12.5"
    overall diameter: 25.7"
    thread width: 11.8"

    The Nitto NT-01 in 315/30-18 (mounted on 18x11):
    overall width: 12.6"
    overall diameter: 25.35"
    thread width: N/A

    now note that since it's mounted on 18x10.5, the overall width will be slightly smaller.

    Before i say anything, note that the Yokohama A032R has 2 compounds... the S(Soft) and the H(Hard), ie A032R-S and A032R-H.
    I have always used the H... the S being meant for strickly auto-x and colder weather.
    I use them daily, so the S was no good for me... i needed a harder compound.
    Having said that, they are great, especially in wet... it's a great wet R-compound... in dry, it does pretty good compared to the competition, and imho, it suffers a bit too much from heat cycling... ie the compound will get hard before you use the thread up... nothing like the Kuhmo V700 Victoracers that stick a bit more and heat cycle worse... but sticks roughly like the RA1 and V700 Ecsta.. but these don't perform as well on wet.
