Want your opinion.

I am in the market for a wheel and tire package. Right now the tire choice is General HTS 265/70/17 ( for right now). Now for the wheels I am leaning towards the Enkei ST6 in gunmetal 17x8.

Vehicle Shown: 2007 Nissan Frontier 4wd Crew SE not Navy Blue
2011 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab SV V6

What does everyone think the Enkei's? I know the final decision is mine. If you have any suggestions that would be great. The only requirement is that the wheel weight is the close to the OEM 16in wheel.

PRG Basic Suspension Package
XTP IMS, Gibson Exhaust, Airaid Intake, UpRev Tuned
N-Fab Nerf Bars, Bakflip G2, Line X Bed Liner

majority of members on here have a fetish for Procomp 7089s, KMC Rockstars, and KMC Addicts.

But what you like should be your final choice. I would recommend a slight bump in tire size and a slightly more aggressive looking tire.

I do not do any off roading and do not plan on it in the future. This is my daily driver. I was looking at the Toyo Open Country A/T II too. The 265/70/17 will keep the truck at 64.91 mph when the speedo reads 65 mph.

They look alright. Rims are a personal choice, so go with what you like.

As for speedo correct - my Nissan was 8km fast when I got it. 285s have actually corrected it to be bang on now.

Pro4X 265/75/16 speedo reads 65. You're going approximately 65.00
265/70/16 speedo reads 65. You're going approximately 62.86
265/70/17 speedo reads 65. You're going approximately 64.91
285/70/17 speedo reads 65. You're going approximately 67.18

Everyone says the Pro4X tire size is right on. I obtained these numbers for the tire size calculator on the discount tire direct website.

As you said, its your truck, do what you like. But, in my opinion, I don't really like street wheels on trucks. Just personal preference. I'd check out MB Motoring. They have sweet "hybrid" wheels for street/off-road. I have their Gunner 6's in gunmetal gray finish and absolutely love them. Be warned though, they are pretty darn heavy.

Different models have different gears, so that is always a factor. Check with a GPS to calibrate to your specific vehicle.
