Just curious if there is any reason these wheels wouldn’t fit? Tires I’m thinking 265/60/18 which are the same as my stock size 265/70/16.

The way the spoke design is, it should fit fine. You'll have to be the guinea pig. You're also going with +12 offsets which should stick out of your fenders more depending on what the 2018 stock wheel specs are. You may rub because of the width of the rims.

That’s what I was thinking with 9.5 wide. I’m new to frontiers so I had to ask. I’m 2wd stock so I need a good fit for an 18” wheel.
Thanks

18" wheels were used on the 2008-2012 Pathfinders with the V8 option. You could use those or find the offset and width of those wheels to help you find a good fit.

Will they fit? Sure.
Will they rub things? Pretty sure.

The OEM Nissan SL 18" wheel is 7.5" wide with an offset of +30mm.

That aftermarket wheel above is +12mm, so it will sit 12mm outward more (a little under 1/2"). However that aftermarket wheel at 9.5" wide also adds another inch to the outside compared to a stock 18", so now you're looking at the aftermarket wheel sticking out a total of about 1.5" farther from where the stock wheel sits.

And we haven't even gotten to all the mods you'll have to do to keep the front tires from rubbing.

Well crap. Maybe I’ll just get some of those new Frontier midnight wheels.
I really do want some nice looking black 18” wheels for my truck.
