Hello,

Currently looking to replace all four tires on my 07' CC

I do not have a Susp lift at the moment, funds are limited currently.

What is the largest tire I can fit with stock suspension using stock 16" rims??
(planning on a lift later down the road)

thanks ahead of time!!

I don't know from personal experience, but I think I searched here and most people suggested 265/75R16 as the max for a stocker (05-10). I just got my truck, but plan on upgrading size when my current tires wear out.

Some people have fit a 285 75 16 but it requires some trimming/molding of the fenderwell

I have been very happy with my 265's though

265/75R16 (stock nismo size) is the largest you can fit stock height with no trimming

take a heat gun to your inner fenders and shrink them a bit

you can run a 33 on the stock gears so that the biggest tire you can run just a question of how much do you like your body and how good you are with a saw. honestly I would lift first then do tires

Here is my 2010 SE with P265-75-R16 Bridgestone Dueler AT Revos. Traded the original tires for these with 100 miles on them. No comparison in quality. Fit is excellent. No trimming and no rubbing. I am very pleased.

Regards,

Chuck

Isn't that the same as the stock size?

yes, but there are 2 stock sizes in the 265's, 265/70's or 265/75's depending on which model you have

FWIW, my 2010 Equator Sport has 265/65/17 as the OEM size.

Um.... you said your funds are limited. Tires will cost you about $600. Plus mount and balance. You can get upto a 3 inch lift for $100 on ebay. I guess I dont get what your tring to do with limited money.

If you want it taller, there is MUCH cheaper ways to do it then dropping 6 hudi's on tires.
Plus if your truck funds are low, big tires will drop your fuel milage too. Just throwing that out there.

265's. I also have a 2007, installed a 2" prg lift with 265/75/16 General Grabber's. Dont like the look of the 285's, personally just too tight looking for me. Also since most of my travel is highway wanted a little better fuel mileage. Cost of fuel going to go thru the roof due to the oil rig rupture!!!

you guys have some good points! Thanks for the good info!

Tire replacement is due soon since the original tires are almost worn out.

I should just bite the bullet on a lift kit.
Any more info on these Ebay $100 lifts?

Otherwise Ready Lift or 4x4 customizers out of Florida seem to be in the $250-300 range.

Just search ebay for the year of your truck nissan suspension lift. You'll find what your looking for.

And with 4x4 customizers out of Florida, I just asked them for my money back. I ordered a 2 inch body lift, and they say they make each order so it could be up to 1 week before they ship it. And they would email you the tracking number when they do. Well I'm all but 2 weeks into it and have go no return after 2 emails and 10 calls and no one answered. I'm pissed and want my mnoney back!


Just a FYI!

Just backing up what these guys have said.
Biggest tire that will fit without chopping into your truck (in 16" dia) is 265/75-16.
That's what I am now running and clearance is minimal but safe.
Also noticed a slight drop in gas mileage coming from the old 265/70-16s that were on here from the factory, just for the record.

FYI: 265/75-16 is approx. 1" larger in diameter than 265/70-16, meaning approx. 1/2" taller stance for the truck.
Plus the 75s just fill out the wheel well much better imo.

Ebay (ADF) lift:
http://www.clubfrontier.org/forums/f26/fyi-ebay-spacers-shackles-52636/
Leveling-Spacers

The ReadyLift comes with bump stops, but for more than double the cost, I think it's hard to justify the purchase of one of those over the ADF lift.
While it doesn't make it worth double the cost, it also includes the camber bolts.
I think some people are inclined to something like this even if it is a bit more, simply because it is an all in one package.
