Stock tire size guide

Postby volvite » Sun Jun 12, 2011 12:12 am

I've been searching through the forum to find a listing of all the tire sizes that came out for my 08 Pathfinder. This is just going to give me some reference when I buy new tires as the wife is driving the legs off the pathfinder. If I missed a similar thread, I'm sorry if this is a repost. Hopefully this will help others out as well. If my information is wrong, please let me know and I'll try and research this some more to correct the issue. These should be the stock tire sizes that came out on the following years:

2008 Pathfinder (Would assume 2008-2012)

SE 5.6L 4x4/4x2 265/60/R18
LE 5.6L 4x4/4x2 265/60/R18

SE 4.0L 4x4/4x2 265/65/R17
LE 4.0L 4x4/4x2 265/65/R17

S 4.0L 4x4/4x2 245/75/R16

SE 4.0L Off Road 265/75/R16


2005 Pathfinder (Would assume 2005-2007)

LE 4.0L 4x4/4x2 265/65/R17

SE 4.0L 4x4/4x2 265/70/R16

XE 4.0L 4x4/4x2 245/75/R16

SE 4.0L Off Road 265/75/R16

Looks about right.
I'm running 265/70r17 on my 08 SE 4x4.

So I see you are stock height, and just a tad taller tire. Any rubbing issues?

OEM bolt Patterns: 2005 to 2011

Pathfinder is 6x4.5.

Xterra 6x4.5

Frontier 6x4.5

Titan/Armada 6x5.5.


Just thought more info if you are looking to keep OEM Nissan rims on your Pathfinder, these rims from the Xterra, and Frontier would fit.

I've got a question? Anyone have or know of anyone that has put on 6x4.5 to 6x5.5 wheel adaptors? I'm possibly looking to do this so I can pick up a set of used rims and tires off an armada/titan. I see full sets of rims and tires for sale all over and can get them inexpensive.

Has anyone run a 32 inch tire on a stock Pathfinder without rubbing?

You'll need to do the melt mod. Racerzx fit 33" BFGs with a stock suspension (did the melt mod):

Hey, I have the same tire size, but I am stuck with TECH INSPECTION service, which does not want to certify those tires for my Pathy. It's actually so complicated to get past tech inspection here, that the ONLY way is to buy smaller tires :evil:
- either this dimension is too big for 17'' wheels
- or if wheels fit, they are not certified for Pathfinder

I still can put some proper tires just to pass tech inspection, but when I put larger ones on later, some cop in bad mood can easily remove me out of traffic and prescribe me a ticket :?

How did you manage to pass thru technical inspection with those dimension?

Edit:

I updated the original post splitting the R51 into 1st and 2nd tranches to reflect the last year of 2nd tranche to be 2012.
