The rolling diameter, will depend on the Aspect ratio tyres you use.

Re: 18'' on xe esp

Legal rim size is generlly 2 inch's bigger than the biggest factory option on the car.
Your biggest option on the XE would have been 15".
Give vicroads a call to see what they say.

2 inches from the manufacturers specifications. theyre not legal and any and all insurance companies wont touch you with rims that size on that car. you can put them on but expect a few 'pretty yellow stickers' on your windscreen.

Re: 18'' on xe esp

18s on a XE have to be engineered ... would be worth it though ... and probabill pass easy as... except if your using spacers
