Re: Aftermarket Rims and Alloys


I sed to run 225xr20 x 35 and the stretch sucked. Wheels were to heavy for my T30, and not enough tyre wall for a smooth ride. And now when I look back at it, the gap between tyre and wheel guard looked huge!

Seen a t30 on 22's!!! Now that looked good..

Here's a pic of mine on 20's..

Scored myself some brand new, 16x7 Steel Sunraysias (KingWheels - Terra) in black this week for $120 a wheel, which was pretty good considering how bloody hard it is to find anything in steel, with our stud pattern and that actually has a suitable offset for the exy. I'm absolutely stoked with the rough look it's given the car. Combined with the lift and tyres, this exy has transformed from a confused suburban/off-roader to a not-so-subtle offroad monster. For me, the wheels have really finished the car off nicely.

Are the Wheel sizes for the T30/31 the same? I have a T30 and want exactly as you have so am very interested to know if the same 16x7 size is possible for my 04 Ti. Also what tyres do you have in that picture?

Re:


The only difference is a few mm in the offset; but yes they're effectively the same. I'd strongly advise against getting the same rims as me though, as the reduced offset means the wheel/tyre sticks out too far and doesn't rise centered inside the wheel well, resulting in scrubbing on the guards. Tyres are 235/70/16 muddies.

EDIT: not sure if that tyre size will fit inside the wheel wells of a t30. Someone with a t30 can probably tell you that. .

Re: Aftermarket Rims and Alloys


Hi All,

So I'm trying to decide on new rims to go with the new Bridgestone Dueller ATs (235/70R16 LT) I want to get as the existing factory 16" steel rims and Dueller HTs (215/65R16) have my Speedo out by about 5.5% when compared to a GPS.

Firstly, in Qld is that a legal tyre size as I have read through soo many reviews (and calls which referred me to VSB 14 - 4.2.4) and none have definitively given me a straight answer. Secondly, I believe with my raised suspension I shouldn't have an issue with clearance but can anyone answer the scrubbing issue that Ian Ewing touched on.

A number of on-line stores (like Beaurepairs and Jax) can provide a visualisation of rims that will fit your year, make and model of car. Most tyre shops I visited whilst in Brisbane leant towards CSA - Edge, while I was looking at the Speedy Wheels- Liberator as they slightly resembled the new models rims.

I would still like some individualility, but does anyone know of a rim that is similar to the 17" newish model XTrail rims that come in 16" sizes?

Cheers for any help,
Benjamin

Ian, will these wheels and tyres fit under a standard height xtrail? Also, is your speedo out? I am hoping to have a dedicated off road wheel / tyre combo and hoping this setup works.

Re: Aftermarket Rims and Alloys


Hi All,

So just an update on my tyres for my T31.

Originally had the factory set up 215/65R16 Dueller HTs on steel rims.
Now I have 235/70R16 Duellet ATs on same steel rims.

Admittedly I've had the Pedders lift kit installed before the tyres were fitted.
I've driven about 9,000km on them in 3.5months.
No issues I think they're great, not even scrubbing at full lock or fully loaded towing a fully loaded trailer.

Done one trip off road (300km on dirt road at 80-100km/hr) and had no issues.
Admittedly I didn't even let them down from 38PSI.

My only dissatisfaction is I believe they're the reason for my poor fuel economy when towing at full speed. Yes I could reduce speed from the maximum speed limit but when you gotta drive 1,850km that 20km/hr slower makes a big difference when you want to get home in 2days. Did the trip down in 24hrs!

Very happy though :-)

Cheers,
Ben

In theory, yes, as that size tyre/wheel diameter has been used in AT by quite a few members here without any lift kit. All depends on what tyres you plan on using however. Currently only myself, and more recently one other member (AugustusXTtrail), have fitted mud tyres(MT) to our xtrails. I had the lift kit installed a week or so before having the wheels/tyres fitted, and mine scrubbed a bit more than they should be allowed to (mainly on full steering lock or articulating offroad), but I would confidently say that had more to do with my aftermarket steel wheels having the incorrect offset than anything else. I think the only difference between the AT and MT in 235/70/16 could be the tread depth and the aggressive lugs on the sidewall, but I'm not a tyre expert and can only tell you what I know.

And YES, my speedo is "out". My tyre diameter is 7% larger if memory serves me correctly(?). I've been radar tested and have also double-checked with my GPS, and as far as I can tell, my speedo is now running EXACTLY true, or I under-read by max 1km/h. 7% is the new maximum increase in OD you can have in nsw, so that's pushing it anyway, haha.

Re:


Hi Ian

Thanks for the reply. It gives some confidence to my idea. Any issues with brake clearance? Do you have a recommendation on the offset?

I am weighing up either replacing relatively new tires on the TL rim (pirelli scorpians come to mind) or running a 16 inch sunnies on AT's to be used on getaways only. If I need to raise it, I will most likely go down the monroe shock / spring combo, I will make that call once they are on. The motivation to do this comes from a lack a confidence from the sidewalls on the standard tires when on central aus dirt roads and finding replacement if the worst happens.

Cheers

Re: Aftermarket Rims and Alloys


Hi all,

I can get on to a set of RJR CRAVE wheels in 17x7 and correct offset for $150 changeover on an old mixed set of wheels. I asked specifically about off road use and the answer is that they are load rated at 690kg each which is equivalent to the t31 alloys. My intention is to wrap them in my geolanders and enjoy.

I see no problem with using these wheels off road but would appreciate any input/opinion from the forum.

Cheers!!

Yes I am very late on the scene, and this is a bit of a thread dig

Gotta say that the Murano wheels + 245/45r18's make a "Significant" improvement on handling.

I was considering doing shock & springs, but got a too good to be ignored price on 2006 Murano wheels off Gumtree...so went with that...guy selling them was very interested in what I was doing with them.

Thanks to all in this thread...couldn't have done it without you!
