What fits and what hits.

I have conducted a semi-thorough trial and error to find what tire/wheel works on a repu. I found a few things that don't work.

This truck is lowered 3 inches in front by cutting the coils/trimming the bumpstops. The rear is lowered about 4 inches by 3 inch blocks and removing the overload leafs and helper leafs. The rear has no bumpstops right now.

First off-I decided on 1995 Nissan Pathfinder 15x7 steel wheels. I have 225/60/15 tires on all 4 corners. The front tires sit all the way inside the fenders and dont rub on the fender lip or inner fender durring lock-to lock full travel. The rears also sits all the way inside the fender and fill them quite nicely.

What does not work:

1. Anything off a Chevy 1/2 ton 4wd truck. 16 inch wheels would have been sweet, but they stick out about 3/4 of an inch past the fenders.

2. Anything off a Toyota 4wd. Good looking wheels, WAY wrong offset.

I would like people with more trial and error knowlegde to post 'What fits and what hits' in this thread.


1. Nothing sticking past the fender lip on the front. What works on your stock-hieght truck may be a $2000 waste of money on one that is lowered.

2. Please post manufacturer and size, other more common vehicles it fits would be helpfull. Remember-plenty of 'custom' wheels that technicaly bolt up to a vehicle are completely wrong once a hard-cornering repu needs to tuck it inside a fender.
