Wondering what is the max you can go?

Im buying an XLE AWD, which comes with 18' x 7' rims. So a couple questions...

I've seen a couple rim companies that say an 18x8 rim will fit? Does this seem right? I dont want it rubbing or have to do any cutting.

Also haven't seen this talked about anywhere either; Can I put 17's on an AWD XLE? Not sure about if there are clearance differences between the LE and XLE (assuming brake upgrades maybe?) or is it just downgraded rims from the XLE and there is no difference? This also opens up some options as far as rim selection goes.

Coming from the off-roading side of vehicles, the question you asked can be very tricky to answer and vehicle dependent because of so many factors.
1. Wheel Width
- 18x7, 18x8, etc
2. Wheel backspacing
3. Stock tire size vs Wider vs Taller
4. Tire Brand
-some brands in the same size technically can be taller or shorter than stock

I've seen vehicles where just changing wheels with stock tires can cause rubbing etc so until more people swap wheels and tires our info is kinda limited.

I currently run the stock wheels on my XLE AWD but with stock size Nitto Dura Grappler ATs with a 1.5" lift and don't rub
