Yes, this swap can be done. However, ideal tire size is 225/40/18 instead of the MS3's stock 215/45/18 tires.
Take a look around, many have placed MS3 rims on their MZ3 with no problem.
Actually 225/45/18 tires should be used on stock 18 x 7 rims. 225/40/18 requires a minimum 7.5 inch wide rim. Check tire sites. While it can be done, the side wall deformation exceeds recommended tire mounting parameters.
