Compatible Alloys for X-Trail


Hi all.

I was wondering if anyone knew of any compatible alloys on cars other than the X-Trail?

I know the specs but have only had the chance to look at a few and not many cars seem to have 40mm offsets. But does anyone know of cars that match, i.e. Magna, commodore, etc?
Or anybody know a link to a list of wheel specs for cars in Australia?

I plan to keep an eye out and pick up a set of alloys anytime from now onwards, and I got a great set of wheels for my Mark 1 MR2 off eBay that were for the current Spider model. I'm hoping a similar find is possible for the X-Trail.

BTW - Dave4x4, what wheels do you have? Just saw your updated picture, sorta from the front, but the wheels look great!

Thanks
Brendon

 Yeah, Daves tyres are spot-on. Probably the best looking tyres on a exee which I have seen. In his own words, "There my pride and joy"
 Come on Dave, post some pics.

Re: Compatible Alloys for X-Trail


You have to be careful getting any old rims for the XTrail as the standard Nissan alloys are "high impact" to suit the load carrying and four wheel drive ability of the XTrail. The thing that sets these apart from other 4wd's is that the XTrails only have five studs instead of six like a commercial vehicle. I think now some other compact 4wd's also use five studs.
So it may be possible to find something that physically fits, but will it handle the load? Or be legal?
I noticed in the brochures of new wheels, quite often they only had one particular wheel to suit the XTrail.

Guys,

How far would a 17"x8" rim stick-out from the fender if the offset is exactly the same as the standard rims I now have (40)?

Rim width on the 16" alloys is 6.5"

I'm running 17 x 7.5 (with 40 mm offset) and don't notice any appreciable difference.

Eggins,

Thanks. Good point.
In light of this info I will just sit tight and wait for X-Trail alloys to appear for sale.
I probably do not want to risk weaker wheels as a relative just had the two front X-Tail Alloys replaced by AAMI due to an offroad thump. So weaker ones would be disastrous.

Speaking of which emoticon HERE you go. Not perfect, but can be repaired (depending on the scratches)

Re: Compatible Alloys for X-Trail


Sorry Brendon,
I havn't even looked at this thread as I had rims and tyres I wasn't interested to tell you the truth but if I can help you out with info not a problem. I have 17"x7" rims as 8" wide are elegal on the x-trail and for load rating dont pay any attention to what your tyres have written on them look at your tyre placard you can go 1" wider than original spec this means 7.5" not that common though plus they stick outside the gaurds at the correct offset. They originaly put 8" on and they stuck out to far but that was their mistake as I ordered 7".Most alloys meet the rating for the x-trail but in saying this there will be a lot of places that will try and only sell you 4WD rims. Stud patterns that match are Ford but they are a rear wheel drive this means completly wrong offset Magna's have the same pattern and are front wheel drive this would be compatable with the correct offset Hope this helps
Dave

Re: Compatible Alloys for X-Trail


Dave,

I'm now a bit confused by your response.

You said that legally we can go 2" wider, but then you said that an 8" wide rim is illegal.

The factory 16" rims are 6.5" wide, if I add 2" to that, I can go upto 8.5" wide (if there is such size at all) unless am completely wrong about the way the 2 inches are added.

Can you please clarify, as am now in negotiation on 17"x8" alloys and would like to know if they will be legal or not. Also how far would they stick-out? Looking at Roger's alloys which are 7.5" wide, I reckon they still look pretty good.

Re: Compatible Alloys for X-Trail


I've been asking around at various tyre+wheel places since I bought my exy (Jan this year), and no-one has much of an idea. They generally all say "which ones were you interested in" and then proceed to call the supplier to see if they would fit - and given the number of wheels out there, this is a slow way of going about it!

I emailed ROH and Speedy wheels (having selected a few interesting wheels online), and only ROH replied with the info that from their current range only the 'Envy' would be suitable for the exy. I like these wheels, though haven't gone ahead (yet) as RRP is 250 a piece. I guess I'm reluctant to spring $1k on wheels in the mere hope they look good on the exy.

Image

It's a bugger trying to find a good wheel - even when you can find the specs (stud diameter, offset) you usually can't tell if their "load rated" or not without calling the manufacterer.


Oh, and nobody's seen the current ebay auction right? These are not the wheels you are looking for... (actually, I'm not taken by the older rounded-spoke Ti wheels).
