I am wondering if anyone has knowledge or experience on the fitment of mid to late 1990's Altima wheels on a Versa. I am interested in maybe swapping my steelies for OEM 15x6 aluminum wheels. I find them cheap on CL, but they usually need to refinished. My question for you is, are they a perfect fit? I ask because I see posts referring to Sentra Spec V wheels needing a shim. I have not been able to find much about old 15" or 16" wheels though.

They work great on older Versa's with the smaller breaks like my car.



but like stated above they are 4x114 and newer Versa's and Notes use 4x100.

According to Tirerack.com the Altima uses a 4 x 114 bolt pattern, we use a 4 x 100 bolt pattern.
Yes, PP is correct. The newer (13-14-15) Versa Sedans and all Notes are 4x100mm bolt pattern. Earlier this year when I was shopping for my wheels, even TireRack had the bolt pattern wrong. They've since had it corrected.

Also its very important to note that the bore diameter for the VSedan and Note is 60.5mm, so an OEM Honda Fit or Toyota 4x100mm wheel will also not work since these are usually smaller bores.

Aftermarket wheels should be fine since they have bore diameters that are usually larger than 60.5mm. You will just have to use the appropriate hub ring adapter for hub centric mount, if you so desire.

Older Nissan's had 4x100. You may want to look into some b14 SE-R wheels

Use Honda stock wheels, cheap and all over
Not going to work Necos.

As I said on a previous post, bore center is too small on a Honda (56mm). Note requires 60.1mm (sorry I think I said 60.5 on a previous post).

I just bought an aftermarket set of wheels (for my snow tires) which were previously used on a Honda Fit and I had to look for new hub centric rings.

Jas32, How are you going to deal with TPMS issue? I haven't decided if I'm getting winter tires/wheels for the car and that's an issue that will sway my decision.

This is correct I didnt even think about this, I retract my statement >:D

I decided I will try to put up with the illuminated TPMS dash light. If I can't stand it then I'll have to pony up for a set of sensors. My son tolerated it on his RX8 for several winters he had his car. A small piece of black electrical tape over the light can probably help as well.

Thanks for the info guys. I thought the 2nd gen was still 4x114.3. I too was confused by conflicting info from the online wheel shops. Bad news is my attempt for cheap OEM wheels is out the window, good news is 4x100 is way more common.

I did more research and found some good info. Here is a wheel reference chart I found online:

Thread Size Wheel Bolt Pattern Application Chart

As for 4x100 wheels, It appears Nissan uses the biggest bore size 59.1mm. ** I've seen a few conflicting numbers for the bore size, such as 59.1, 60.1 & 66.1, but regardless they are even bigger than the others. So using other OEM wheels won't work without a pro machining the bore out. As for Sentra or other Nissan wheels, it appears the bolt pattern has been pretty inconsistent. Some years the Sentra's & other compact models are 4x100, others are 4x114.3. Check the chart for details.

I know for a fact that the Note has a 60.1mm bore center diameter. Not only did I measure my stock wheels, I also had a tough time looking for and finding hub centric rings for my aftermarket wheels.

Best bet is to find aftermarket wheels for your Note as a good majority of them have bore centers larger than 60.1mm (and then use the proper hub centric ring for proper fit if you so desire). Based on info from Tirerack, offsets between 35-45 mm (depending on the rim width) should work.

Copy That! Thanks for clearing up the bore size. I also appreciate the offset info.
