Re: Compatible Alloys for X-Trail


Hi Guys,

My set of T30 16" alloys and tyres were sold to an owner of a T31 that has 17" wheels. They fit perfectly as I told you previously, so if you are finding it hard to find compatible A/T tyres in the 17" range or finding them very expensive, dropping down a size to 16" is the perfect solution.

Re: Compatible Alloys for X-Trail


Hey guys, I picked up my Murano rims today and firstly did a test fit on my t31 and they are good both front and back.

Anyone thinking about these keep an eye on ebay, there has been 3 sets in 4 weeks with the highest price being $200 for the set.

Re: Compatible Alloys for X-Trail


Hi all.
I have been looking for some alloys for my T30 ST and due to the lack of second hand wheels for sale on ebay started looking at wheel and tyre companies websites. Bob Jane's website has a "virtual wheels""link (see below), which shows a pic of a car and then places your selected wheel on it. Gives you the opportunity to see how the wheels look before you buy, and tells you if the wheels will fit.

Steve,

There is currently a set of 18" Murano alloys on eBay selling for about $300 bucks from Tempe Tyres. It's a very good price indeed if you want to fit 18" alloys on your ST and they are also 4WD rated, unlike many other alloys which are not.

Re:


Good stuff Steve, yuo can list your steelies in the For Sale section of the forum and am sure someone would pick them up as a second set for off-roading.

Re: Re:


Hi Guys,

I've read through most of the threads in this post and noticed that the offset for T31 Rims is quoted as 40mm.

According to my exy's 2009 handbook it is 45mm (1,77")

The 5mm might just be the difference between rubbing or not when you want to fit the biggest rubber available for standard 17X6-1/2 Rims (Which I want to do for good reasons)

My car is the Indonesian version.
It might be that there is a difference between supplies to different countries,
(I doubt for the front drive train) or it could be a typo in my handbook.
Just thought I let you know.


Rgds....Andre

Re:


Hi Andre,

It could be 45mm, but in terms of fitting alternative alloys that are 40mm, it won't be a problem at all, as there is an allowance with the factory alloys and won't cause any rubbing.

You can check the impact of the offset using THIS tyres and wheels calculator.

Re:


Im running 18" Munaro rims with 245/50 Khumos

Image

been researching the 3% diameter rule for new rims/tyres. Seems that typically if you go for a running diameter exactly as stock fitted(per calculators), you will be running 3% on the safe side for indicated speed verses actual speed, for legal reasons. All new cars work on this figure.

Therefore theoretically, disregarding speedo error( which is always on the safe side, again for legal reasons), if you run a 3% larger diameter combination, you will be indicating much closer to actual speed!!
As tyres wear, diameter decreases and becomes "more tolerant" to error as speed will over read.

There are a lot of other factors as well, tyre temp, load on tyre etc... but overall why not run as close as the upper limit as possible where what the thing reads is correct!!
This is a win/win situation as not only is the speedo indicating actual speed, and in any case buying less expensive tyres(higher profile 50 V 45) in addition you are saving 3km odometer reading per 100 km traveled and get a softer ride.

Just my thoughts....
