Nissan pathfinder wheels on aurion


Recommended Posts


With 8mm chrome pinstripe 👍

I've ordered the 60.1mm to 66.1mm hub ring from eBay so that's no worry. However I've found the wheel nuts are an issue......

Toyota wheel nut shank is 18.2mm diameter, but Nissan wheel holes are 15mm & are designed to accept acorn nuts with 60deg taper. Too easy, I thought.... Until I found the Toyota stud is too short to grab onto an acorn nut. So the hunt has been on to find a 12mmx1.5 tapered nut with shank that will fit into the Nissan hole. The closest I can find is a 15.7mm shank diameter. The plan is to drill out the Nissan hole from 15mm to 16mm to accept a 15.7mm shank.

Looking for the cheapest way whilst having everything bolt up fine. Turns out these wheels are made by enkei 👍  I considered having the holes drilled out 3.5mm to suit the Toyota nuts, but there's no guarantee the nuts will still fit properly. At least this way, the tapered section of the nut will 100% center the wheel properly, and that's on top of the hubcentric ring. I drilled them out today, and will place an order for the gorilla taper/shank nuts. If my drilling is straight, and the nuts are made to exact spec, I may have a small chance these wheels will fit 🤞😂

Yay they fit. Well one does, & I'll take my chances on the rest having been drilled correctly by me. I reckon its gonna look great 👍 superlow springs have been ordered from pedders and should be in the car soon then will fit these & take some pics

Checked it out again myself, there's no issue with the wheel nuts, that tiny bit sticking out the back of the wheel slots perfectly in the gap around the stud just like the factory nut did. These wheel nuts are literally perfect for this application.
