15'' will, a 14'' will not. its damn close with a 15'' as it is. i can maybe get a finger between the caliper and the wheels.

Recommended wheel & tire sizes for 185/65-14 tire sized QG18DE cars:

17” X 7” (40 to 45mm offset)
205/40-17 (Perfect match. Tires look like rubber bands on wheels. Potholes kill wheels. 60 MPH = 60 MPH)
215/40-17 (Slightly taller. Tires still look like rubber bands on wheels. Potholes kill wheels. 60 MPH = 60.8 MPH)
Hi, not sure if someone asked this before but after reading all the pages I didn't find the answer. :/

I was just wondering why is that 225/40 is not included for QG18DE cars tbat came stock with the 14" wheels and is there a 17" size that wont murder the wheels?

Much thanks!

That's a good question.

Question now for you all that have experience with this:
Our car is a 2005 Spec-v with the 17" stock wheels...NOW...as we drive in the city and need more meat on the tire, we bought a set of SE-R six spoke wheels like the altimas in 2000 came with.

Can i run those rims with like let's say 215-50-16 and the suspension won't be f* with?
Costco won't install the tires for me as the car was not sold with those wheels from factory and "may affect" the car...

Thanks for your help!

2000 Sentra GXE - Will a full size tire and rim fit in the trunk?

It has 185/65R14 tires on it.

IS there a tire a size taller that will work. The speedometer is about 4 mph off. At about 60 mph it shows you are going about 64 mph - Checked by GPS and road speed signs

1 size taller tire might help that.

Does anybody have a recommendation?

Does anybody close to Clifton, Illinois have a wheel or wheel and tire to sell?

15x7 wheels and P195/60R15 tires were available as original equipment for those cars (I didn't even know you could get 14's on a GXE). A 15" donut will fit in the trunk since that was the smallest wheel size that could go on some of the B15's.
