Default New Wheels and Tires, not sure if they fit

I was looking at tirerack.com at some new tires and wheels. They have sort of a help system for checking what will fit on the car, I just want someone knowledgable to check thier answers. I am trying to get away with this on the cheap and would buy used if I could find a set of 18"s and tires for cheaper than this website.

Wheels:
18x8 Mille Miglia Uno Bright Silver Paint
Millie Miglia Uno - $139/ea
18" x 8"5/100 bolt pattern
http://www.tirerack.com/servlet/Call...pecial=Pricing

Tires:
225/40WR18 Sumitomo HTR+ Blackwall
Sumitomo HTR+ (ulta high performace All-season)
Size:225/40-18
WR Speed Rated Price: $108/ea Special
http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....omCompare1=yes

Total comes to $1,114.58 with 4 wheels and tires balanced and shipped

These are going on a 2002 pt cruiser (Ron Jon Edition)
I was also looking at getting a set of lowering springs (2") from one of the links posted on this site

Panterafreak,
You can get a better deal with more rim styles at this website: http://www.victoriatire.com

They have 18 inch packages of rims and tries on special starting at $825....check it out, that is where I got my 18's... hope this helps you out!

either the wheels/tire or the group, Herschel, I just want to know if those size rims and tires will fit, not real up on the offsets and all of that required for a proper wheel fit, in attiton with the width of the tires I don't want them sticking way out and looking ridiculous, just cool hehe

thanks Bigphil3232 i will check them out

also if I put a 2 inch drop on this thing with some lowering springs ($189 online) the 18"s would still fit correct? If you guys have any sub $200 springs that you like could you post a link to those as well?

that second set of springs says it lowers 2.75 in front and 3.25 in back, is that too far? will I need to get new shocks and/or struts to compesate for lower than 2 inches?
