Looking for alloy rims for my 2015 nv200. It seems there is a discrepancy between the width size of the rims. In my search on google on rim size it comes up 15" × 5 1/2". But every rim I searched for is 6" W and up. I'm almost giving up on the rims I wanted for my baby. Would anyone know if the 6" W rims would work?

go on willtheyfit.com and enter your existing and proposed sizes and it will show you one over the other on a diagram, and how much further than existing they will stick out and in

Hi Jim D, if you're after 'after-market' alloys, then they are generally wider than stock rims. (and larger diameter too) I have 6" wide steel rims on mine and they fit fine. It all depends on the ET size. Dependent on where you live and what Covid restrictions are in force, I would suggest contacting a reputable alloy wheel specialist/dealer and try fitting a rim on before buying. I read that several NV200 owners have 7" wide alloy rims without a problem, but I would still say try fitting one. If it fits and you're happy, then you have to decided on tyres! I believe you're in the United States? Here in the UK any change to wheels/tyres must be notified to insurance company. Another thing to consider is the load rating of the rim.

Gerry's advice is good--go someplace and have them fit up a sample. Place by me did it for $25. It's not as simple as just width--tire sidewalls will bulge more or less depending on rim width, and the rim's backspacing will affect how close the sidewall gets to the inner or outer fenderwell. Find out what the width and back spacing options are for the rim you like, and then see if they can match that with a rim and used tire they have laying around. On the rear, have them lower it down with a chunk of wood (4x4?) under one of the rear wheels to see how the assembly swings up into the wheel well when you go over a bump. On the front, check clearances to fenderwells when you turn lock-to-lock, and make sure nothing hits brakes or suspension. If you carry loads in your van, put something heavy in the back when you do this.

FWIW, I run 215/60 R16 Yokohama Geolandar's with a thin (4mm?) spacer on the rears to adjust the back spacing. Rims were a $50 set off a Cadillac CTS. They scuff the inner fenders on the back if I am turning while going over a sidewalk or speed bump, but not enough to leave a mark on the tire.

Now somebody will respond and tell me my speedometer is off by 3% in 3...2...1... :rolleyes:

Question, how much of a difference does that wheel & tire make with road noise and handling? I'm looking to do the same and my goal is to reduce road noise and improve handling. Your feedback will be helpful. Thanks

I just bought a set of alloy wheels from America's Tires. I wanted to keep my original tires (only 50 miles) so I bought 15 X 6.0 wheels and they work fine.
Because the wheels and tires are so dinky, I'm now thinking I should have gone with the 17" wheels and sprung for new tires. I may still do that.

These are Vision wheels, 15 X 6.0"

Hi all, I have recently purchased a e-NV200 and have some 17” wheels from a previous vehicle with the same stud pattern. I was wondering if these would be ok to fit and what tire size would be best, they currently have 225/60/17 which look too big. UK based so not sure if this makes a difference? Thanks in advance!

Hi MattBos,

If they look too big, then........!
The UK model's factory fitted overall tyre/wheel diameter is 601mm. The 225/60x17s you have, their diameter is 702mm ! That throws up all sorts of problems, speedo, gearing, scrub factor, depending on the width of your 17" rims and ET, will the side doors be able to open.......the list goes on. Also, the CB measurement is 66.1mm. If the rims you have have a larger size (even 67.1mm) use Spigot rings so that the wheel sits correctly and not reliant on just sitting on the studs.
There's also insurance implications too. When changing over rims/tyres, contact your insurers before hand. Some insurance companies are fine, others add a premium, others won't accept any modifications......and DON'T take any notice of anyone who says don't bother informing your insurers. I guess it's up to them and their own stupidity.

If it's of any help, I always check out the following site when customising my motors and I want to get a rough idea of how new wheels/tyres will affect things.

I hope this helps

Thanks for the advice, I will certainly be switching out the tyres so will bear that in mind in regards to the overall diameter. I have read a post where someone has put on 205/50/17 tyres so may go for 205/45/17. With regards to the spigot rings, don’t suppose you have a link in case I need to get these ordered? Thanks in advance Matt

Your'e welcome Matt :) Spigot rings can be found on e-bay, or perhaps alloy wheel dealers as well.
