Default Any update on OE wheels that will tuck on D21

I have an 88 Nissan that I'm in the process of getting on the road again. It has Pathfinder front fenders. It currently has 15x8.5 on 225/50/15's that are junk and need to be replaced. I'm looking to go with a taller rim and a low profile tire. I'm thinking perhaps an 18" wheel.

From what I have been able to determine in reading the forum on the hardbody a 17" Escalade wheel will tuck pretty cleanly on the truck without requiring the bed to be stretched. I think the same holds true for some of the 17" Chevy 1500 truck wheels.

My understanding is an 18" Titan wheel will not tuck cleanly with just Pathfinder fenders and requires a rear fender stretch on the bed.

A larger majority of the threads on OE wheels and if they fit are several years old. Since larger diameter OE wheels have become more common place even on base model vehicles I am wondering if any is aware of any other OE wheels that have come out in the larger sizes 18" - 20" x 8 -8.5 with a +25 or greater offset which would cleanly tuck under the D21.

If not an OE wheel has anyone run the Raceline Spike 159B Wheel 18x8 6x5.5 (6x139.7) +35MM?

Pretty sure all OE wheels tuck. The factory 40mm "pathy" when's from my truck with 235/75/15s tucked under flex.

The lowered guys will be a able to tell you the range that tucks.
