Im nto sure about the 318s but the rears may come close to rubbing. Damn thats a skinny tire! 185s golly!

Also I dont know what 6Jx15 means. Is the bolt pattern 5x120?

The rears may be coming close but with 185s you mgiht be safe. Dont quote me on that. Also, if they come close to rubbign im sure you could just run 5 mm spacers.

The bolt pattern could be correct, but if they are off a FWD Volvo do not buy them. The offset may be wrong and thus 'whack' out your suspension and concurently, handling.

'99 323i 5spd
