Seeing that only 4 17's fit, do all 18's fit? Offset is a consideration, I understand, as well. Thank you. Been lurking a long time and was just about to pull the trigger on the 18" 706's in Bronze which are NLA.

It’s hard to say ALL. But the majority of 18” wheels won’t have the caliper clearance issues that 17” wheels do.
5x114.3 bolt pattern and load limits are the main concerns

As xydadx3 mentioned, it hard to say all, however a lot of the 18" aftermarket wheels in 5-114.3 that are 8-inches wide with an offset around +35mm typically fit and are properly load rated.

You mentioned the 706... are you referring to the Method 706? If so, this model does not appear to be offered in 18-inch in the 5-114.3 bolt pattern. A solid alternative you may want to look into is the 18x8 +38 offset KMC Nomad.

I was thikning of the kmc Bully706 which is NLA. I pulled some jedi mind tricks on her and we're going with the Nomad. Thankfully. Really wanted to get the stuff from discount, locally. now i'm working on tires. i've got analysis paralysis here!

Thanks for the help.
