SENTRA SER or JUKE TAKE OFF WHEELS

Tue Sep 13, 2011 11:52 am

I am thinking I may try some Nissan take off wheels on my leaf

I like the OE wheels quality and have seen several sets on ebay

anyone have an idea if a wheel from a sentra ser 17" will work on the Leaf?

Strong , OE quality and finish and reasonable price!

The Juke has the same bolt pattern as the Leaf, 5x114.3.

Those are higher offset wheels than stock so they will be set in just a tad more than the stock wheels. With a 5 or 10 mm spacer I think they would look pretty good. Just make sure the centerbore on the Juke wheels is the same or larger than Leaf, which it probably will be. Aside form that it's caliper clearance which also shouldnt be an issue as imagine the Juke has similar 2-piston calipers to the Leaf.

Here is stock wheel/tires vs your proposed Juke option with 215/45/17 tire.

I have a set of Juke stock wheels in great condition. One has a small scratch. I'll beat any ebay price if interested.

Perhaps if you have the time, you could try and install them on your Leaf and take a couple of pics for us to look at. It would be interesting to see how it stance.

it would be great to see what the juke wheel would look like

even if you just staged a picture by putting the wheels in front of the leaf wheels so we could see what it would look like

I took the wheels off of my fiance's Soul to see how they would look on the Leaf. I think they look good, however they are not a good fit. The wheel misses the caliper by about 16th of an inch or less. I did not even try to see if it hit anything by turning the wheel. It did not rub but was far too close for comfort. All I did was back down the driveway and go back up. It's interesting that the wheels are over 15 lbs heavier, and with that mass further from the hub. The wheel/tire combo also has a slightly larger diameter.
