Every tire mfg posts specs on their web site.
Look up Toyo tires for example and see what rim they require for each tire size and style.
Usually there is a range of wheel widths for each tire.

My vote is no.

Even if you found a magical brand where it could fit, that's a horrible match in terms of size.

That tire size is for 18x11 - 18x12

In order for it to fit it would have to be a 315/20/18, "IF" it were to fit or made on a 9.5" rim.

I have 265/40/18's DR's on a 9.5"Rim which sits flush no stretch no buldge. So lets assume you increase tread print and reduce side wall.

285/30/18- No side wall,
295/25/18- rubberband
305/20/18- Elastic
315/15 or 20/18- Celophane wrapper WTF.

I'd say no but I'm no Tire Manufacturer.

It doesn't work that way. A 315/35/18 is the same overall diameter as a stock 245/45/18. It can physically fit, but there will be severe sidewall bulge and IMO its not safe.

I guess it will physically fit, but you can't drive on it and its not the same overall diameter. Usually, to keep the same overall diameter when going wider on tires you need to decrease the sidewall height.

There is currently according to Tire rack, 1 tire offered in this size, A kumho ECSTA. It says minimum width of 10-11.5". I doubt that fits but if it does show us so we can see.
