My new wheels from ebay were delivered a couple hours ago, got the tire machine and balancer going and here we are. 16" along with extra load Pirellis, 205/55R/16. These tires are supposed to be low rolling resistance and ARE really quiet going down the road!

Well that looks way better!

205/55R16's spec out at 25.0" in diameter. Approx 5.5% taller than the stock 185/60R15's.
So the speedo will now read 5.5% slower and the effective drivetrain ratio is reduced by the same amount.

The 205/55R16 Pirelli Cinturato's spec at 1477lbs @50psi, so you're fine there.

These vans look much better in darker colors IMO...

I run my tires at the max 44 psi as stated on tire. Running Toyo eclipse 205/55/16. Wear has been excellent for 16k so far.
TPMS didn't trigger at 40psi until temps dropped below 30*. So I upped to 44 psi and never an issue regardless of temp.

Any one have part numbers for these wheels, or the model name and year they came off of? Thanks

Hope the quote works.
The wheels look like they will take the stock tpms but mine seemed to have corroded and getting the valve stems out of them was impossible. So I...........................took the plastic "glass" off of the instrument panel and with a Sharpie black marker, I went over the orange lighted area several times until the light magically disappeared. I know how to check tire pressure and drove my whole life without those silly things.
As far as ratio, per my GPS, original wheels at 70mph indicated I was doing 68mph on the GPS and after the switch I was doing almost 72 mph.

Nissan Wheels & trailer hitch

Thanks -

I ordered some wheels and now I am waiting for them to arrive here in Canada.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nissan-Wheels-16-BRAND-NEW-Factory-OEM-alloy-Rims-Altima-Maxima-Quest-/221802984949?hash=item33a47cf5f5&vxp=mtr

I also put a trailer hitch on mine. UHaul had the best price for the hitch and a wiring kit. The hitch was made by Curt Hitch 13165 and the wiring kit is 56279.

They did not want to do the wiring so I am going to do it. The Curt site has detailed instructions to do install both the hitch and the wiring.

Wheel offset differences?

So, the Maxima/Altima wheels have a 40mm offset, whereas the stock NV200 wheels have a 45mm offset. Is this an issue? Are spacers required behind the new wheels?

Any answers to the question above about the spacers?
Or do the wheels in question with the tires clear everything underneath

Sorry. Not on here much.
There is no rubbing of any kind. I had to trim the front center caps a bit to fit without the bearing caps hitting it. A 1/4" spacer would easily do the trick.
