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
