Default Wheel Info:Eskies and Titans, lugnuts and etc

First let me say welcome to InfamousNissan, chances are that if you are reading this you may be new to nissans or just beginning to build your ride.
No worries though, you are not alone. Many people have once asked these questions.

Let's start with some specs:

Q: What is the lug and bolt pattern for my truck?
A: 6 on 139.7mm or 6 on 5.5"

Q:What's the right offset for a hardbody?
A:+30 mm for 7 inch wheels

Q:What is the center bore for my truck?
A:4 inches or 100mm to be exact

Q:Will Cadillac Escalade wheels fit my truck?
A:With a little work yes. The lug pattern on full size GM rims are the same, yet the center will have to be bored to the above mentioned specs to fit. This is also true for Nissan Titan wheels. On a side note Escalade wheels are often referred to as "eskies"

Q:What wheels can I run that don't require them to be bored out in the center?
A:Of course you can run any of the hardbody wheels, as well as pre '05 Frontier and Xterra wheels, pathfinder through 04 , 6lug Toyota, Colorado,H3,

Q:What all wheels can fit if they are bored?
A: Fullsize GM wheels including Z-71, Eskies,Yukon, Sierra and so forth also non GM's would be Titans, Infinity, Mazda, Isuzu,

Q:What are the specs if I have an '05 up?
A:6x4.5 with a 66.1mm bore +35mm offset of 8.5" wheels

Q:How can I determine the right rim tire combination for me?
A: there are many calculators online that can be useful
here are a few: http://www.rims-n-tires.com/rt_specs.jsp
http://www.1010tires.com/WheelOffsetCalculator.asp
http://www.miata.net/garage/tirecalc.html
http://riverviewtire.com/Tireheightchart.html

Q:How do I get my rims bored?
A:Many prefer to take them into a machine shop and have them professionally done. Although there is a process that has become quite popular to do it yourselfers using a router.

Q:Are there any other concerns that need to be mentioned in regards to fitting any of the above mentioned wheels?
A:Yes some wheels may require you to flair your bedside. Other ways people have worked out small clearance issues, have been trimming or rolling the inner lip. Up front 4x4 or Pathfinder fenders and make life easier by giving you added space.

**Also if planning to run drop spindles it is recommended that you at least run a 17 inch rim, although it is possible to run smaller wheels with spindles it will require more work**


Hope this thread a help to people and will eliminate many other duplicate threads.

I would also like to say thanks to other members for their contribution of information. This was put together with my knowledge as well as info from others; ScottXGTR,wv87minitruckr,Thor,cornwell customs,Indecline,nislo,skrapinflesh

If anyone has useful fact to contribute here (do so) or sees anything that may need a correction (let me know) other than that let's keep this a tech thread. The only reason I'm leaving open is for more contributions...If you have a question requiring more information or explanation, open a thread and ask...but please search first to see that it hasn't already been asked. As time goes by we hope we can bring more in depth how to articles that may help with some things mentioned here such as boring with router and flaring the bedsides.

Lugnuts Explained:

eskies, titans, denalis and etc are normally bolted up with bulge acorn style.
some toyota wheels require a shank style lug nut. please refer to the diagrams below

Nissan lug nut size is 12mm 1.25 pitch available at any parts store, or summit online if you are having issues locally

Anyone know the backspacing of the 18" Titan wheels? I am looking at 6 spoke but I hear they are the same as 5's.
