Default 225/55r18's on an ms6?

OK so, my tire blew out last night and I'm currently driving on my donut, so obviously in need a new tire fast. Since i have kind of crap tires I was thinking about replacing all 4. The crap tires that are on it now are still fairly new, but I digress.
So since I'm poor, i found some tires on rims on my local classifieds for fairly cheap. They are 225/55r18. So basically i'm wondering if they will fit withouy rubbing.

I'm sure they would fit, you can make anything fit with enough persuasion, however I wouldn't do it. Keep looking around you can find some good stuff on Craigslist. Hell I just picked up some evo x Enkei's with almost brand new 235/40/18 tires (80-90% tread) for $500. Obviously you are on the spare so your are a bit limited on time but make sure you get the right size. I think most people with 18's go with 215/45 (stock), 225/45 (slightly wider and taller) , 235/40(wider and shorter, might rub), 245/40 (wider stock height, probably rub).

Edit; the rubbing also depends on the offset of the wheel and your suspension.

I can't understand people asking these questions. So the stock tire height (measured from the rim lip to the ground) is 215*0.45 = 96.75mm. The tire you want to get is 225 * 0.55 = 123.75mm, so more than 1 inch higher That is a mazda cx5/cx7/SUV tire.

So go with a stock size tire or a size close to stock. If you are poor then you should be wiser. Yes, those tires will fit to move the car in a parking lot, but the first big pothole compressing the suspension to the maximum and you will see your fenders flying.

Buy the tire, and get road hazard insurance. Discount auto is easier to work with than tire rack for the road hazard. My suggestion is go with 245/45/17s when you can afford it. That is really the answer,Going with 55s on a 18 is not a good idea. The 17 option is actually cheaper in the long run as 17s are quite a bit cheaper tire and you have more options. Plus you are in BC you should be on snow tires now. Canada Tire has a road hazard program you can buy into as well.

Ok, so heres an update.
Found the tire at OK Tire. That is the ONLY people who carry it. I was going to get it, but I just realized something.
So I have this job coming up with the Longshoreman's Union. Basically its dock work, good pay, yada yada. The problem is I have to wait for it. Its a garuenteed job, but I have to be able to go over the Coquihalla to get from Kelowna to Vancouver when they call me. These Primewell pz-900's do not have the snowflake meaning they aren't rated to go in extreme winter conditions (like over the Coquihalla). They could phone me any day and I would have to get my ass to Van. Now if I have these tires, I can't get to Van basically.
So long story short, I have to buy 4 All-Season's that the snowflake rating, or 4 cheaper winters with a snowflake rating (obviously all-season's are preferred). So yeah...
