I don't think you're supposed to. The 18x9 rims are too wide for the stock tire. Then again, the tires I am running on my jeep are supposed to be too wide for the stock rims, but Im making it work for the time being. Perhaps it also works the other way around?

Ask a local tire shop, they'll give you a definite answer.

The may fit but it will be stretched out. Be bad for the tire. If you're going to replace the tires soon, it may work and then go for it. But if you have a wait then I wouldn't try it
