You'll need 18" wheels, but they will fit. Problem is, they are 1" taller than stock. They will lengthen your gearing and hurt your acceleration.

While we're on the topic of larger wheels and diameter vs stock, does a 245/40x18 stay close to oem diameter?

245/35-18 is nearly identical.

Here's a good site to play with both tire and wheel sizes:

For reference, stock is:
