Looking for steel rims for my NM Pajero, I currently have 16x6 steel rims and the tyres that fit thse and are suitable for off road is minimal. Any one where I can get 16x7 or 16 x8 8 rims which allows a 265 tyre to be fitted. Widest tyre at present that can be fitted is 235 road Tyre.

Hi Hoof,
Not sure if NM is current model, but we tried to get steel wheels 16x7 for current model paj a couple months ago, and gave up after chasing many leads, they have a 46 positive offset, which doesnt match anything currently made.
We settled for 1 aftermarket mag at $200 for the 6 wheel and gave away the idea of steel wheels for off road and factory mags for home !
Hope this helps.

Thanks Pesty,
I have had feelers out for a few months and looks like alloys are the go, though I have had sugestions that the GU Nissan wheel - 16x8 - fits. Will look futher into this and post back here as this seems to be a dilema for many Pajero drivers.

Cheers hoof

The Nissan wheels, I believe, have a different size boss hole (??) in the centre of the rim. Makes them unsuitable for the Paj as it's this hole, fitting over the flange on the hub that actually carries the weight.

The weight is NOT supported by the wheel studs.

Cheers, John.

Check out the ROH Wheels web site for something suitable.

They have a good guide for each vehicle type and for my Navara they were around $100 each.

Good hunting!

Gday Hoof
I kept the 6" steel rims and changed the tyre size to 235/85/16 from the standard 235/80/16. 85 profile tyres are very easy to get and range from road to mud pattern. As pointed out earlier, you can't just rely on the wheel studs to hold the wheel on. Also having a greater rolling diameter gives lots of flotation in the sand with a bit of air out. I have hardly noticed the difference in diameter affecting my spedo or trip meter. Just another option, I dont have any complaints yet.

I got hold of some Performance wheels that fit ($150), They are part of there industrial line and come in 16x7 and 16x8. Because of the offset you may need to add wheel arch flares. The stampedes come in at approx $200 I was unable to find a manufacturer that makes a steel rim that fits.
