The 1/8 7018 will work just fine. That said the typical 7018 is going to run a lot better on DC than on AC.

You can use AC for a 7018, but a standard 7018 is considered a DC rod. That said, they do make 7018 AC rods that are designed to run on AC, and are usually labeled 7018AC.

Use the AC 7018 and burn them hot around 140 amps and you should be fine. If you have access to a DC welder, it will weld a lot nicer and be easier.
