if i were you i would measure between the swing arms or edges of the fender to see how much clearance you have, you also have to give yourself a couple millimeters from the chain. in a tire size 18 - 130/ 80. the 130 is the width of the tire. its 130 mm. so you will probably need a tape measure with mm, or a conversion table. hope that helps.
