So I have a lead on some 16x8s for $200 that supposedly came off a 1996. Would they fit my 1995? Would they look funny or it would be okay? Thanks

i rode 1-1/2 hours and got my 15x7s from a guy that was parting out a 98 frontier, but i have seen 98-02 pathfinders with them, too. i have seen these in 15x6s also.

david29 should be able to hook you up.

check craigslist vehicles for sale if you need help deciding.

they fit just fine and clear the brakes with no problem. i bought General Grabbers, 225/70R15s from ebay. they have white letters, but mine are on the inside.
might go outside next time, XoXscifi's tires look really good that way.

paid $350.89 shipped. ordered monday night at midnight, had them wednesday at noon,fedex.
i bought mine from ebay seller 'priority tire' , 99% rating. used paypal credit to purchase, so they are $29/month for 12 months.

i browsed tirerack, tirewarehouse, tire this and that,all the tire sites for a while.

nobody could beat priority tire for selection, price, and shipping, i will buy from them again.

most ebay approved shops in my area wanted $75-$95 to mount and balance them. i got a small independent local shop to do mine for $10 each!! they used the flat "stick on the inside of the wheel" weights (didn't need much) and it looks real nice. $15 each is reasonable though. i just took the wheels and tires to them to mount, and installed them at home myself.

save your studs,no impact guns on the lugs !!!

they also had hancook st,kumho solus ta11,and nitto tires that are rated good at a similar price.
the Generals are very quiet and SMOOTH ! my 14" coopers were like riding in a stagecoach, but they were old.

i also ordered gorilla locking lugnuts at the same time,12mm x 1.25 acorn type lugs...$29.83 for 4 lugs and 2 keys, an extra key was only a couple of bucks more, but $10 from gorilla,plus waiting for it, if you lose it.

one key is in my tool bag, another is somewhere in the interior with a super magnet stuck to it. i got those from seller 'leetautomotive' 99% rating, too.

215s would be okay, i just wanted a little more and got 225s. 70s fit the truck good, 75s are a little taller. mine do not rub anywhere at full wheel lock.
my RPMs went down and my mileage went up, only threw my speedometer off by 1.5 mph.

play around here and see what you like...https://tiresize.com/comparison/

my oem 14" spare had deteriorated and popped, so i got a 15" chrome 4x4 hardbody/pathfinder wheel with a good tire on it from the pick and pull for $40.
it's in the front of the bed, rides better that hanging underneath, for me anyway.

dang, bill !!

i just viewed your new album.

now that's one good looking truck !!! the bed is clean as a pin !

your right side view and straight on shot are great pictures. they all are.

can you tell us how you aquired it? how long you've had it? 80k is very unusual for a 94.

i didn't mean to repeat myself in my PM, but it's my story and i'm sticking to it! i hope the CL links were helpful.

thank you for posting, A.M.

Smile My Little Red Truck

I bought the truck in April of 2019 on Facebook marketplace.I was not looking to buy anything but it caught my eye and since the mileage was low ( 78K now has 84K ) and was just listed for 5 minutes I jumped on going to go and looking on the truck over.I drove 80 miles and it was a 2 owner truck,price $2.500 and got it for $2.250 because he said it need it front brakes and that's what I got it for.Since I had it I have done brakes,new rotors, repacked front wheel bearings,new muffler, tinted windows and now planing on installing cruise.Once I move to Tennessee I am planning to go and find a body shop and take care of some rust bubbles because it's going to be with me for a long time. Everything works 100% including the emergency brake.I Love the little truck,it has a special place in my heart.

Need a little help / clarification... above it’s stated:

“If you were to go up to a 15" and wanted to stay with a tire size close to the 215/75/14, you could run 215/70/15's, and checking that size on Tirerack.com I get 33 different tires.

If your stock size is a 195/75/14 you could run a 205/65/15 and they compare like this - 195/75/14 - 25.5" diameter, 7.7" wide - 205/65/15 - 25.5" diameter, 8.1" wide”

Does this indicate that I could put the 15’s on the stock 14 inch rim?

I had better luck looking for single rims to make a set, than trying to find a complete set. Center caps are rare and may have to be pieced together as well.
