Re: Compatible Alloys for X-Trail


I've never heard of wheels been made to suit "high impact" - and as far as I know there is no standard for indicating whether they are manufactured to withstand "high impact". The only variation I know of that is available is "light-weight" wheels.

Didn't someone recently post up a link to a really extensive run-down of all there is to know about wheels? Maybe it was on another forum (PGA) - it took me a very long time to read through it all!

Also Jalal, the RTA website has guidelines for modifications to wheels and in it it states you can go no more than 1inch wider than standard... RTA PDF Document - 160kB

Re: Compatible Alloys for X-Trail


Thanks Rich,

I was in a hurry when I made the post this morning, but I have since found the RTA guidelines on our main site under "technical"

I got confused, as I thought the allowable rim width was also based on the tare weight of the car and with our exy being 1395kg, the allowable width increase is 2" but for the rear wheels only (that's the way I read it anyway) emoticon

Bugger, I can't get those 17"x8" then emoticon

Jalal
If this is the case which I do not think it is front rim size different to rear you cant rotate tyres not a good move plus I have seen 8" on and they would be a cop magnet not to mention getting mud on your door handles. My alloys are for passenger vehicles as you just mentioned the exy only weighs 1395kg heaps lighter than a comodore or falcon and there is nothing special about there rims.

Thanks Dave,

That's why I initially asked in this thread "how far would they stick-out"? emoticon

I have never seen an 8" wide (in 17" size) rim on an xtrail and couldn't pitcure the situation either.

However they didn't look that bad on THIS exy of hscher (member of our forum) and these are 18"x8"

Jalal,
You can have a different offset to keep your rims under the gaurds this puts less load on the wheel bearings this is what they might have done but the laws where he is might be pretty slack. One of the main reasons for having the correct offset is wheel bearing life and it also puts a less load on your steering assembly as a whole.

Thanks again Dave,

I don't want to be taking any risks in this regard both mechanical and legal emoticon

I'll stick with the recommended wheel size and see if I can find any in the style I have found.

Re: Compatible Alloys for X-Trail


af3556,

I also much prefer the series 2 alloys over the more rounded series 1's.
That's not to say if the price was right I would'nt punt for a set of series 1 wheels, but they'd have to be cheap.

So, if anybody is thinking of selling their Series 2 Alloys (I'm starting to suspect someone may be emoticon ) then I'd appreciate getting a chance to buy them.
