Bigger wheels on qashqai

Post by Harleycotts » Tue Mar 19, 2019 6:07 pm

Hi guys can anyone help, I have a qashqai acenta 2009 with 16" wheels and I'm looking to replace them with bigger ones off a newer qashqai that have the better looking rims, would this be possible or not? I'm thinking 17 or 18" but thought I'd check before buying, thanks in advance!

The important thing is the overall diameter including tyres, you will need to double check the stud pattern too

All Qashqai wheels are the same offset and pcd. You just need to remember to keep the rolling radius the same.

Basically, as you can see as the wheel size increases, the aspect ratio comes down. This is due to the width of the wheel increasing, not the diameter. The aspect ratio is a % of the overall wheel width.

Hi all .
My 2009 QQ has 18 inch wheels on . In my opinion the gap between tyre and arch is too big .. how can I reduce this gap please .. tyres on the car at the moment are 225/45/18
Thank you
