235/75R15 on a PRO-4X?

I'm able to get 4 free winter tires of size 235/75R15 for my PRO-4X. I know the base Frontier has that size of tire but is there known problems for using this on the other Frontier?

Probably look a little funny though

Thanks for any help on this!

235/75-16 is a stock size? For what.... 2WD? Stock size for the Pro4X is 265/75-16

There will be a few issues...
- Ground clearance will be reduced
- Speed and ODO will be WAY off
- Stopping distance may be increase
- It will just look weird

the pro4x is sooo special and unique, there is no way anything that would fit on a cheap regular frontier would ever fit on the mighty pro4x.



i wonder when these pro4x owners will get off their superiority chair and realize the pro4x does not in fact use super special unique top secret parts. a weird concept but since the two trucks are indeed identical for the most part, parts are indeed interchangeable.

What year is your truck?

Do you already have 15" rims?


If you are reusing rims already on the vehicle that size tire will probably work, but it will be pretty small. You will want to check the load rating for certain, and snow tires tend to be a bit squishy to begin with.

I have 245/75R16(111S) snow tires on my truck and they have a lot more sidewall squirm than the stock 265/70R16 (111T) tires. They're quite a bit more squirmy than the Cooper ATPs I run in the summer as well.

Full set of Hefty skids, TJM Coilover w/HD spring, SPC upper control arms and 2" rear add a leaf plus 1" block. TJM extended travel rear shocks. Pyle backup camera wired to a Pioneer radio.

No frontier has that tire/rim size you have listed. And unless you have an extra set of rims a 15" tire won't fit on a 16" rim (which is stock on the frontier)

I hate argue with you humz but the King Cab S 4 X 2 has exactly that size of tires.

The truck is 2012 and no I do not have the rims, in fact I can get the tires for free that is why I was interested. I know the that the size is quite a ways from my PRO-4X 265/75R16

It's 2012 King Cab Pro-4X. No I do not already have the rims it's the fact that I'm able to get the tires free (and the rims) that got me asking questions. Honestly I'd rather have same size winter tires but when the price is right one should look into the opportunity, right?

Actually, the Pro-4x (along with every other V6) does indeed have super special unique top secret brakes. I'm 99% positive you can't fit a 15" rim.
