OEM fronts are 8.5"? I doubt they'd fit anything less than 9" wide wheels. You might even need to go 9.5".

sorry, for the rears. I'd be using 245/40r18 for the front.

Look at the specs tab, on this page:

Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec (tirerack.com)

One of the columns is "Rim Width Range". I'm guessing they got this info from the manufacturer, in which case you might be able to find it on Nitto's website or from a Nitto distributor. However, it seems unlikely there's much variation between different tires of the same size.
