15 x 8 Pro Comp Wheels

Recommended Posts

I just order some 15 x 8 pro comp steel wheel for my 96 and I ordered 32 x 11.30 x 15 BFG tires. The company that I ordered from notified me that the 15in wheels will not fit over the calipers? I looked on the forum that a lot of people have the 15 x 8 wheels that's why I went with them. Did anybody else have this problem?

I have 15x8s and they fit....but not all 15" rims are created equal.

Some people have indicated that there was interference and they required a die grinder to slightly grind down a spot on their calipers for fitment.

Ok thanks I guess I will go with the 15 x 8. They said they might not return them since they told me that the 15in wheels wont fit and recommended 16 in wheels but it seems like everybody has the 15 x 8 on here

Depending on the year,the Pathfinders wheels went from 15-16. If yours is a 96 like it says in your profile, it will fit. I run the ones with the same specs. Enjoy.

I run 15's on my 99 which came with 16's. The fit is extremely tight and with new pads, it won't clear them. So you have 2 options:

1- shave the calipers with a grinder. Super simple and free!!

2- get spacers. This will cost you some but the additional width of the stance looks awesome!!! I love it on mine.

I used to just run shaved calipers until I had to get one replaced as it was seized. The new one still cleared it but only because my pads are halfway down. Now I have 1.75" spacers:

Yep, good info above! IIRC, 2001 was the year Nissan went with the 16" rims, although as said there can be minor interference depending on the specific design/backspacing.

 

I merged the duplicate topics and cleaned things up a bit.

Carry on!

Pre-facelift (96-99) came with 15's, they'll clear just fine as long as your backspace is at least stock or greater. Facelifted (99.5-04) came with 16's (17 on later model LE & Platinum), these have clearance issues when new pads are installed.
