Xterra/Pathfinder rim swap

I have a 2004 Xterra XE L4 2WD with the 15 inch steel wheels

I wanted to know if the 16" Alloys from a 2003 Pathfinder will fit on my Xterra. I do know that the bolt pattern is the same but I was wondering about the hub size or any other issues ?

More then likely you'll be fine with the properly sized tires. What you'll want to make sure of is that the Pathfinder wheels don't have more backspacing than your stock wheels. That's highly unlikely as the stock wheels on the X have quite a bit of backspacing. But your biggest priority is going to be sure you don't rub against the suspension.

So Keep you backspacing about the same and your tire size appropriate for it and you'll be fine.

I went from 2001 stock 16"s to pathy 15"s no problem. Even with 4WD

another possibility- I'm using the 15" rims off my old 00 Frontier as winter rims on my 00. So maybe a pair off one of them.
