I measured both of the wheel cradles on the Pro Series Q-Slot Platform-Style 2 Bike and 4 Bike Carrier, part # PS63138. The cradle measures 15-1/4 inches from the bar to the inside edge of the cradle, Based on that measurement, the bikes with 16 inch and 18 inch wheels should fit just fine. I have linked you to a product review video for this carrier.

I have attached a couple of photos that show a bike with 16 inch wheels on the rack. With the adjustable cradles you can see that the cradles adjust for the bike. I also have a photo that shows how much of the wheel sticks out under the cradle with the bike installed. There is approximately 5 inches of the wheel below the cradle, so I would keep this in mind when considering ground clearance.
