That Facebook marketplace rims are 15x7
I have a set of the 14" factory and 15' factory alloy rims for sale. No center caps for 14's, only 2 center caps for 15's.

Not many people want 14's as tire choice is not the best, a lot of the tires out there are actually trailer tires. You would be much better off going up to a 15", plenty of factory style wheels if you want to stay with an OEM look.

Just looked on Tirerack.com, the 2 sizes of tire listed for the 14" wheels (stock sizes), in 195/75/14 they show 2 different tires and in 215/75/14 they show 2 different tires, not much choice as I said.



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.


The size comparison between those 2 are - 215/75/14 - 26.7" diameter, 8.5" wide vs the 215/70/15 which is 26.9" diameter, 8.5" wide


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


and there are 57 different tires available in that size on Tirerack.com

i think you will really like the 15s if you can get them.
mine rides so much smoother and quieter, sits it up a little,also.

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.
