Iíve been looking for one since August. Theyíre like henís teeth. Iíve seen a few from XC90 advertised but Iím advised that they do not fit, but I donít know why.
Iíd be grateful if you let me know if you have any success.

The XC90 has a larger centre bore...

The XC70 had an option of "Minos" alloy wheels that were 18", as well as the R-Design ones, but as has been said they are rare (in good condition).

I personally think the XC70 rides better on 17's with 60 profile tyres than on 18's with 50's.

Have a look on eBay.
There's a refurbishing company selling a set of 18" Minos for £425
