Re: compact spare tire and wheel for 2019 Leaf SV Plus

Yeah me too.
My wife's Hyundai hybrid didn't come with a spare at all so it got a full size alloy wheel like the other 4 plus the jack and tire iron kit from her old hyumdai.
Since the leaf has never gone more than 25 miles from home in almost 2 years it got a space saver.
When I put the big battery in there I will probably go to a full size spare.

I have a Mazda3 space saver that I got from a junk yard. Finding the right spec wheel for a Visia was quite the challenge since most cars have only 4 nuts.

I'm finding a lot of responses to the question about buying a spare tire which recommend the Altima wheel as a satisfactory replacement. But I'm also seeing in the responses that they refer to 16" wheels.

My 2019 Leaf has 17" wheels.

Which used 17" wheels will work for me, please?

Some Altimas came with 17" wheels so if you find a spare from one of those cars it should work. There are multiple websites on line that show the wheel specs for all the different Nissan models over the years. Find the specs for your Leaf and then look through other Nissan models and years to find the matches. The main parameters to check are the offset and rim width. The bolt pattern and center bore are probably the same for any recent Nissan but that is something to check too.

The most important wheel specs to adhere to are:
  • 5x114.3 bolt pattern
  • 40mm offset
  • CB of 66.1mm or larger
According to wheels-size.com, you could match those specs by obtaining a used 17" rim from these cars:

Qashqai (2007 - 2017)
Qashqai+2 (2008 - 2013)
Quest (2003 - 2009)
X-Trail (2001 - 2007)
