-25 off set 15" rims will fit on all GU's except 4.5L & 4.8L
calipers are too big as it is the nissan 16" steel rims only just fit on my '98 GU

Standard Nissan Offset is +10 and you should be able to buy a brand new steel rim with that offset in a 15 for sure...

I am not sure why you cant change your offset though?? I believe you but cant imagine why this would be a problem? most are running anything from Neg 6 through to Neg 22 or more?

What is it going on? Is it a cut down GU with a tub or steel tray?

yeah I have full airbag rear end and when I lower the pressure to fit under car parks etc with the alloy tray fitted my wheels go up right beside the rope tie down bars running along the tray and I can't fit my fingers in there so increasing the offset is only going to make this a problem. I am just curious as my tyres are coming up for replacement and 15" rims and tyres could be so much cheaper when I sell the standard nissan alloys It could end up costing not much more

thanks for the replys I guess -10 is what I needed to know the wheel shops should beable to tell me what rims will fit but I can keep them honest if they start steering me another way

-10 offset will be a change of 20mm outward as the standard Nissan Offset that you have now is POSITIVE 10.

+10 not - 10.

I'd be sticking with the 16s if you can mate for clearance and ventilation around the brakes.

Looks good.

I don't suppose repositioning the brackets on the tie down rail is an option? Then you could cut out the rail above the tyre and use almost any wheel and tyre combination you'd like to choose.

Thanks Guys yeah maybe I will cut the rope rail after the canopy goes on as I won't need it to tie down and go for 0 offset.
I was thinking of getting a 30mm coil spacer for the front as I am very happy with the ride comfort and increase air pressure in back airbags to keep it level and lower the rear bump stops abit to just to make sure I miss the tray on up travel.

thanks for your comments
