Do 215/60R16 winter tires fit the 18 Leaf SL?

Sun Nov 04, 2018 10:51 pm

Hello everyone,

I'm new to the forum. Does anyone with tire knowledge know if this tire set up is compatible with the 18 Leaf SL?

Size 215/60R16

They were used on 2013 Nissan Altima.

Thanks in advance.

I think the SL comes with only 17" wheels, but I'm not 100% certain. They take 215/50/R17.

If you buy some cheap 16" steel rims then you can use 215/60 R16 tires for sure. The circumference is a little bigger, so the odometer and speedometer will be slight affected.

205/55/16 is what the '18 Base model uses for tires so those are specced to work for sure as long as the wheel has the correct offset & of course bolt pattern.

Beyond that a online tire size calculator would tell you what changes you would see going to your proposed size.
