Hi All,

Im fairly new the the world of Nissan & Pathfinders, bought my 07 Pathfinder around 6 months ago and spent my time giving it a good service, replacing squeaky suspension components and just general bit of TLC to get it back to its former glory. (Previously owned a Freelander, What an upgrade this is compared to that knightmare of a car!!)

I've now come to the wheels, Im looking to go for something a little more aggressive and some kind of all terrain tire. Ive bought a set of 18" U spoke Pathfinder alloys an upgrade from my original 17" 6 spoke wheels. My question is......

What size tires can I fit on these wheels without having to lift the truck? Im led to believe they come standard with 255/60/R18?

Will a 265/60/R18 fit fine or can I go wider? Im looking at the MAXXIS Wormdrive tires?


Thanks in advance for all you help!

Kind Regards

Gareth

The Offroad trim came with 265/75r16 which is a 32" tire. You could go 265/65r18 or maybe even 265/70r18 with the melt mod.

I think going wider or taller would result in rubbing without a lift.

Brilliant thank you for that reply a massive help. Do you have any recommendations for tyre? The Maxxis don’t come in that size. What are the Radar Renegade RT + like anyone had them before?

check out Doctahjones' former ride for some inspiration. I have the same wheels and will be blacking them out just like he did. He mentions the following and had at least a 2" suspension lift:

"Yup, 285/65/18 fits in the spare area on the factory le rim. Sometimes you have to help it get into the correct position, but it certainly fits...

So guys........ I've gone with Rader Renegade RT+ 265/65/R18. Fantastic. Quiete on the road, great grip and look awesome! The wheels I've sprayed grey. 3 base coats and 3 clear coats. I've done them with a compressor and spray gun they look awesome.

Give fit photos on my phone I'll upload them when .


O and no rubbing at all.

Regards

Gareth
