Will a 315 fit on an 18x10 or does it have to be a 10.5?

If your car is lowered you will have to roll the inner quarter lips a good bit to run 315. I have 18x10 with 305/35-18 nitto drag radials. I had to roll my inner quarters to allow clearance.

I also have to agree if you go with a 305 or 315 it's definitely a good idea to roll the quater lip, and IMO the 315's look the best!!!

That's funny I have owned a dozen lowered cars and that's always the old school way of doing it. I also used an actual lip roller on my M3. The wheel roller is the best if you can find one.

I know tire rack used to rent them. I would also check with a high end rim shop in your area. In Atlanta we have Butler tire who offers the service.
