What size tires for stock 16" OEM

Postby NissanR51PA » Mon Sep 06, 2021 11:17 am

Hi guys,
I'm looking for your suggestions on how wide of a tire size I can go with my stock 16" wheels. I currently have 245/75/16 on them and will need replacement in another month. I currently have installed an all-round 2.5" lift from SF Creation. I've been to a few tire shops in my area and they are just telling me to go to 17" wheels as there is more options?

Any suggestions would be great.

It seems like this question has been asked many times before. Have you tried the search feature at this site?

The width of the tires you want would be dependent on the width of the factory 16" rim. You can go to any site like tirerack.com and look at the tires that you may be interested in to see if it'll fit the factory 16" rim. The tire specs will tell you what rim width is recommended for each tire. If the factory rim is a 16x7, make sure the tire is rated for a 7" width rim.

Little late on this but with the 2.5" SF creations lift do you have any issues with the CV Axel's/boots or alignment issues?

No issues with CV/boots. The alignment is a bit off in the back, but nothing to worry about.

I haven't posted since 2021. But here is an update, I decided to go with 265/75R-16 Kumho Road Venture AT51 on the OEM 16's. Also, I replaced the stock OEM suspension (200k) with replica OEMs. No rubbing with the 265's.
