Replacing rim size

Post by luka » Sun Dec 15, 2019 4:02 pm


Would it be problem to use spare rim for winter tyres, dimension 7jx16, central hole 74.1? Qashqai J11.

Thank you

Googling on a quiet evening...

From,29:2 standard fitment appears to be Tyre: 215/65R16 98H Rim: 6.5Jx16 ET40 PCD: 5x114.3 Centre Bore: 66.1 mm

Assuming Nabenbohrung (74.1mm) = Centre Bore (66.1mm) then it appears it may be a problem? I never took a wheel off mine (I think) so I don't know whether the Qashqai depends on a snug fit on the hub.

EDIT - they are showing up here though:

Luka, are you saying you want to use this as a Spare Winter Wheel or you want a Set of these Wheels for the Winter.
Anyway whatever, as you will see from the post we have just installed the Nissan Std Wheel (Emergency Wheel) 145/90 R16 in our new QQ and that is tight with the Bose Sub-Woofer and size. If you place your size in the Rear it will sit even higher.

Now Nissan Wheels are normally : 5 Lug / 114,3mm Lug Dia / 66,1mm Middle Bore as Gloucester has mentioned. My understanding is that the 66,1mm Dia is important as it should IMHO locate on the Bearing Housing Dia. I can remember lightly smearing this Dia with grease. This is what locates the Wheel, if you use the larger size 74,1mm Dia the wheel will float around within the clearance of the Bolt Holes IMHO not a good idea, but I could be wrong 🙄 - Dave 😏
