16" Nissan Rogue wheels on my NV200

I decided not to mess around buying new tire pressure sensors.
I bought 4 new steel wheels for a Nissan Rogue. I also picked up a set of Hercules Power CV tires that have the same "C" rating, I went with 215/65R16C
I tried out my new tire changer and spin balancer and mounted them up this morning. I really thought I had gone a tad too tall but they haven't rubbed at all yet, even in sharp turns, small humps, etc.

They look good. One comment I have consistantly received is the origional 15s look like compact spare tires. They are just too small in appearance. What did you do to correct speedometer? Do you know if the computer can be reflashed to correct for a change in tire diameter?

My van is also black.

Well, I guess I went too big. Clearance was fine but the van fought pretty hard to go down a flat road at around 55mph. I drove about 35 miles with a tail wind and the mileage average was my worst ever.
I pulled them off today and went with some 205/55R16 tires that I had around just to try it. Van goes down the road just fine now. Mileage more toward normal. So now bigger than the originals but not near as big as those others I tried!

Thanks for the information. In looking at your pictures, there appears to be very little clearance between the 215/65R16C tires and the wheel well. There appears to be much more space between the 205/55R16 and the wheel well. But even the 205/55R16 's look better than the "too small" origional tires. I'm probably gonna follow your lead on this. Please post again when you have driven on the 205/55R16's for a while and have checked your average milage over multiple refuelings. I don't wanna make any expensive mistakes.

I don't want to degrade the cargo capacity of the van, so I am reluctant to jump to aftermarket aluminum wheels. And I strongly dislike the origional hubcaps that came on the ""SV" version and the plastic centercaps that came on the "base" version. I'd like to find some chrome centercaps that fit the center hole of both the 15 and 16 inch factory steel wheels or possibly just a smigion larger. I intend to have the factory steel wheels chrome plated. If the center cap is slightly larger, I can have the hole machined out to accomodate a slightly larger, but factory appearing, center cap. And then just add some chromed lug nuts. Any suggestions?

There is still the question of correcting the speedometer. ???

First thing I did was put on Toyo Eclipse 205/55/16 on American Racing wheels,kept sensors and did matching spare. Tire carrier rear bolts needed 5/8" spacer plate and longer bolts for bigger tire to fit in cage.
Speedo/mileage is only off 6% ie. 100 miles on odo is actually 106 traveled.
NV handles great especially in corners, highway ride less jumpy, and it looks better.

Nicely done!
So Demp, you were able to use the original sensors in the new wheels?
Thanks for the spare tire info. You added spacers for the wider tire? Was the diameter ok with fitting in there?

16x7 rim fits perfect with no scrub issues. They moved sensors over to new rims including spare.
Spacers needed on spare tire cage only due to wider tire. I put solid aluminum blocks at rear cage pivot bolts to lower cage enough so when it pivots around tire it can still meet up with front hook to tighten up. It's a snug fit but it fits.
Also removed the two sheet metal bump blocks that stock tire goes against. Just four spot welds per hump to remove. A bit of primer and undercoat and it looks factory again. New tire contacts underside better without humps.

anyone have a bearing on the mileage difference between the 205s and 185s? What about the 195s?
