18s on 2014 NV200!!!

Let me be the first to introduce my 2014 NV200 S model first brand new van ordered it in blue onyx bluetooth rear windows and cruise control. I love the van but always hated looking at the lame little steel cookie cutters on it. So i did what ever sensible man would do... drive a total of 12 hours round trip to get some wheels that I had no idea if they would fit lol!!!

Great news!!! They fit and they look T I T S!!!

The van looks good, however to say that people haven't been man enough is down right wrong.

Most of us use these vans as work vehicles and to date, there are no tires available to handle the loads we carry. Unfortunately, until then, we are stuck with the "C" tires that come in 15". Others of us are simply trying to keep the income stream coming in and the van is low on the totem pole.

Well said!

Look into the load rating of those tires before you load it up too much!

Also can you turn you steering wheel all the way in each direction without rubbing? Do a slow turn steering all the way in each direction and listen for rubbing noise.

sorry about the whole man enough thing used to the bmw forum im (plus had a few beers before posting lol) on and i totally understand about using these for work thats what i use mine for and i have z rated tires on so they have a really stiff sidewall. these vans are only rated to take on 1500lbs and the vans are light and you have bling bling very heavy tahoes running on paper thing z rated tires and they seem to hold up ok. so i guess im the guinea pig here haha but so far so good i use mine to deliver and sell ad space in magazines so she gets her fair share of weight put in the back for many miles at a time. Yes i can turn my wheels all the way with no rubbing at all with some more room to spare!!!

What's the specs on the wheels, tires and where'd you find them?

I was looking at TireRack.com but they won't list anything over 15" for the van.
When my tires wear out, I hope there will be other options in terms of larger wheels available.

Either way, thanks for posting your findings.

Also, the issue isn't the cargo space, but rather the weight of the vehicle itself too. Not a scientist here, but I imagine going up a tire size might increase the weight capability despite it not being a commercial Euro "C" load rating.
The American "E" load tires can't even come close to the Euro rating. Still amazes me that those dinky 15" donuts can handle the weight the engineers spec'ed them on this van.

i think the only reason tire rack wont show over 15" is because it is a "commercial" vehicle. I am VERY surprised to see 18" will fit ok!! I was thinking of 16" or 17"...hmmmmmm. Nice color choice btw....:-)

yeah the 18s fit great!!! the size on it now is 235/40/r18 y speed rated tires and they can handle 1600lbs a piece and the the wheels are 5zigen pro racing 18x7.5 i think offset of +48mm and i love the look of them and just shadowlined the tails today doing the headlight accents and dipping the grill flat black tomorrow illget pics up asap. cant wait to go mad on the stereo on this thing next it has a decent stock setup but im wanting a few subs rear speakers and upgrade the front speakers and put in remote tweeters and alos put in a legit double din headunit. i think the new nissan versa uses the nv200 steering wheel and radio so good for us with more audio options. Im mostly doing all these little touches because im in it all day during the week and play with my bmws over the weekend
