Default Tall n skinny 14"?

Not too tall and mild off-road tread.

Where to buy?

For 14" wheel? Will a 14" wheel clear everything on the 4wd?



I'd look around at tire rack to see what is available.

a 14 inch wheel will not fit on a 4x4 hardbody. not sure about a 720 for a 14" wheel i would think all available will be biased ply tires maybe a super swamper. honestly your best bet is to move up to a 15" wheel . your options at that point are very common

Not a 4x4, but I figured this would be a logical place to get the skinny.


I suppose 15" would open up options. I just wanted to keep stock alloys and not get too tall.

Wrong. Early model 4x4 Pathfinders came with 14 inch wheels

OH my bad. I really thought it wouldn't clear the bigger disk brakes. general grabber makes a 27 x 8.50 r 14 tire. there are a few DOT approved tires for utv's and they use a 14 inch wheel generally

Interesting. I've been around some early 2 door pathys of various trim levels and none of them were ever specced with 14s.


I can almost guarantee a 14 won't clear on a V6 truck or pathy.

I thought only the 2WD pathfinders and hardbodies had 14 inch rim availability.
