521-510

521 wheel / rim offset and width

Recommended Posts

Ive had a search but cant seem to find anything on this topic relating to a 521... But i am new to this forum so if ive missed it i apoligize in advance.

Im wanting to do some wide steel rims 15's for my 521 tray back and would like to know what width and offset i can get away with.

It will be driveable low.

Ive been thinking i would like 15x8 front and 15x10 rear.

.....thanks

It's all really based off offset too, 15x8s should work fine if they're around -30s and you may have to roll your fenders depending on how low you go.

15x10s you'll definitely need to roll fenders, stretch tire, or flare it.

Thanks. I was hoping for some good neg offset, 30 is a good start. And Yeah its a tray back/flat bed not sure what you guys call them in the states so rears shouldnt be a problem.

15x8 0's are an almost perfect fit around.

 

Here in 'Murica we use Chevy K5 Blazer wheels.

Ah i see i have seen those rims in alot of 521 pics yeah the blazer didnt make it this far south. I do like them but most likely impossible for me to get here unfortunately. so they are a 15x8 0 offset?

just a little FYI, Any wheel from a 04 and OLDER will have the same bolt pattern as our dattos(6x139.7 or 6x5.5in).  the 05 and UP went to 4.5 or 114.3 x6 six lug,

I made this thread when I first tried them out.  vhttp://community.ratsun.net/topic/37296-sc-xterra-wheel-fitment/

 

Ive seen other xterra/titan/frontier/infinity wheels on datto trucks.  I think, Yellow620 has some of those flat four spokes.  The most popular is the 18" titan 6 spoke and 5 spokes.

sticky thread for those...http://community.ratsun.net/topic/2105-datsun-faq-frequently-asked-questions-look-here-first/

 

 

heres jrocks with 18 six spoke

and Hans (not on ratsun or any forum) 18" infinity rims. (red truck in middle)

 

 

 

another popular wheel is the 7 spoke. like on socaldatsuns truck.

Yeah not a fan of the new school wheel on the old school truck....not enough dish....but that first one looks pretty good tho. The red one needs a big rethink it looks shite... each to there own i guess.

Yeah those pathfinder wheels are on patrols over here. Pictures will flow soon enough.

  I had this discussion earlier and did do some research.

 

The 15x8 GM Rally wheels that guys use have a 4" backspce or about a -12 offset (thank you datson4life for measuring yours). I plan on using 16x8 +0 offset wheels with 215/40-16 tires on my 521.

Yeah cheers after doing some research and measuring myself im thinking 8" 0 offset is the way to go.

they are not 15x8 0 offset... they are 15x8 - 19. thay fit all around but if low you may want to stretch a bit and roll the lip flat. i ran them on my 521 in the front, had a 195/50 on them and had to roll it a bit and i was slammed. i swapped to a 175/55 adn thay clear alot better and ar the same height as a 195/50, just a bit narrower to clear the sheetmetal.

Good to know I've been wrong this whole time. 

 

And even better to know on the tire size.

Got pics of that?

yeah its what i ran on the front of my truck. i ran a 15x8 -32 on the rear so i know the k5 wheels will fit the rear no prob, but heres the k5s with a 195/50 on em and the truck is slammed with just the inner lip rolled up, no actual pull out on ther fender so it still has stock appearance.

and here it is with a 175/55 on that same wheel
