So I currently have 16" OEM wheels on my 13 Chevy Cruze LT with the RS package. I am wanting to upgrade to 18" wheels, however I am wanting to know if I get a wheel that is 18 x 8 with an offset of 40mm would that fit without having any issues?

The stock 18s have an offset of +42, so you'd actually be just a tiny bit better off with a +40 ("pushes" the wheel out 2mm).

Proper tire size will be 225/45R18.

I understand, so if I get a wheel with an offset of +35 it'll be better? I am sorry not to familar with the terminology of offset. Also, since the OEM 18" wheels are 18x7, would an 18x8 be sticking out (1 inch)?

Assuming you're not lowered, it shouldn't rub on the fender/quarter, so yes.

If you had the same offset, it'd be about half an inch wider on each side.

Our MSR 013s are a 17x7.5, with a +38mm offset, and there is still plenty of room for another 1/4" or so.

Not a problem! Post some pics when you have the wheels on!

Yes, it'll need to be 5x105. It won't fit, otherwise.
