That is correct, the same would apply with the 18x8.5" ET40. The only difference is depending on your tire size for the 18" diameter, the rolling diameter might be a bit taller than the 17" version with the same width, and can cause rubbing issues. For example, a 235/40/18 is a full inch larger in overall diameter than the 235/40/17, while the 245/35/18 is a very rare size, but is only 0.1" taller. The 245/35/18 is also only 0.1" taller than the 245/40/17 tire size.
