Re: 19 inch wheels ride quality

Hi Dave,

I believe they are XTrail alloys, but they were advertised as QQ ones.

Re: 19 inch wheels ride quality

Hi all, Quick update, I have managed to get some second hand alloys from fleabay with 4 decent tyres. I put them on and wow, what a difference, the crashing nature of the 45 profile tyres has gone. Our route to our school is now a pleasure, and now I don5 care about the inevitable curbing! Thanks to...

Re: 19 inch wheels ride quality

Thank you Dave, that is very useful info, I have just sourced some 16" Nissan alloys with 65 profile tyres and I'm about to buy them.

Re: 19 inch wheels ride quality

I have both 17'' (winter) and 19'' (summer) tyres. the 19'' is more noisy,but rides fine I am going to get some 16 or 17” wheels, and wondered what alloy/tyre set up you have gone for? I assume the stud pattern is the same for 17” Nissan wheels as my 2015 19” rims? And did you need the tyre valve p...

Re: Hello and Pre-purchase advice.

I don't think that the service history will show anything other than the fact it has been serviced. Have you seen this review ? http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/nissan/qashqai/86843/used-nissan-qashqai-review Cross check the price quoted against the numbers in Auto Trader Really useful article, I hadn'...

Re: Hello and Pre-purchase advice.

I have an April 2015 1.6dci manual NTec+ which I have done 33,000 miles in since new. The front tyres are at most 75% worn, the rears approx 50% (all Continentals).
