Default What year are theses

What year did these wheels come on the Nissan ? Were they an option on the truck? What’s a good set worth?

96-97 2wd, pretty sure they were standard on all trim levels those years. Maybe $1-200

hey, tropicalcats

i just sold my 14x6" aluminum wheels from my 97 rc 2wd on my local craigslist for $200, which i thought was a fair price....they were perfect, as were the center caps, and i had older 215/75R/14s on them. about 10k miles left on them. my truck sat real nice with them.

i only sold them to finance my new tires to go on the 99 frontier aluminum wheels i purchased 2 weeks ago. $125 for 4 15x7s, centercaps and lugnuts but no tires. the 14s were so pretty, i wish i could have kept them, but they went to a good home.

but new 12mmx1.25 gorilla lug locks with 2 keys, and new tires arrive tomorrow from priority tire on ebay via fedex.

i had no response to my 14" wheels ad for a whole week, then EVERYBODY wanted to purchase, i could have sold 6 sets for full asking price if i had them. i had several people from 3 hours away willing to come now !

i sold them to the first guy that responded, he lived 1.5 hours from me, but worked a little closer. we talked and tried to schedule for almost a week, and were finally able to meet this past saturday at my local police station....

there were others that could have met and bought them sooner, but i kept him at the top of the list because of his polite and detailed responses, his professed love of d21s and his genuine need for them.
he is trying to get a 95 back in shape, and i steered him to IN and the FSMs. he was very grateful for this... *Thanks, Alabama LL !!*

i had tried to purchase from CL some 87 toyota 4x4 steel wheels to refinish before i bought the frontiers, but only got back back 1 or 2 word responses, and he never acknowledged most of my questions, even when asked twice.

an example.... i said cash in hand,asked where was he, where and when could we meet, were they from his truck, and were all the wheels straight and true. he answered with a zip code, nothing more. so frustrating.

after 8 messages from me, and asking if he still had the wheels(also unanswered) i finally asked for photos of both sides of all the wheels. he said it would take a few days to get them(it was 5 days),at this point, i wrote him off in my head.
i was riding home with the frontiers when he texted me no pictures, but saying "still interested?" i said "NO." and smiled. Abner(my 97) and i continued home :-)

So I pulled the trigger and got the rims with some good tread still on the tires.
What’s the best way to clean them up ? One has a little curb rash on it.
I want to get the weights on the back side.

Curb rash is easy to remove. Get you a 4 1/2" angle grinder and put on a 100 grit flapper disc. Sand it smooth after that. I do it all the time with these and sell them on ebay without any issues.

Will theses lugs work on these rims ?
I think they will.





This set says it will fit but description says not for OEM wheels. What’s up with that?

You can use the lug nuts that are the same style that came on your truck. Make sure to get the correct size. Which I believe is the 12mX1.25 thread pitch.
