2018 Leaf Gen 2 Winter Tires size

Wed Jun 06, 2018 11:34 am

Hi,

I am wondering if anyone know if 2018 Nissan Leaf able to fit 15" rims (205/65/15) for winter? I cannot find anything on internet.

Thank you!

According to this website, it should work:

However, the wheels/rims will have to have:

- Wheel size of 15" x 6.5" with a 40mm positive offset
- 5 bolts x 114.3mm (4.5") Bolt pattern (aka PCD)
- Hub center bore of 66.1mm

You could also probably use a 7" wide alloy wheel with the same specs.

No idea, sorry. With a 40mm offset on a 16" wheel, there's no problem. But a 15" wheel seems like a not so great idea. If it was me, I would just purchase some 16" steel wheels and slap the winter tires on those. Steel wheels are inexpensive...
