Do you think the M1 would take 18" wheels?

Hi,

I picked up my Valencia Orange 1M two Saturdays ago and it has been quite a ride. Very different than my 535. I am thinking of taking it to the track and I was thinking of getting 18" wheels w/ R-compound tires. The question is would 18" wheels fit? I don't want to use the PS/2's on the track because the tires drive rough after a few heat/cycles on the track. Any thoughts?

Thanks.
