changing standard alloys

I have an '07 sedona and want to upgrade my std alloys to 17" or 18" - has anyone changed their std 16" alloys out there?

I am having some bother finding any replacements. The 6 stud fitment already seems to restrict any number of wheels, let alone the offset needed.

UK stockists would be preferable, but anywhere will do. Has anyone tried other car makes for comparable wheels? i ask because i have seen the Nissan terano wheels and they look to be of a similar type, despite being a 4x4.

any help would be good

i posted a link in the tyres and wheels section which will give you a list of vehicles which share pcd with a sedona
the older sedonas are the same as bentley
but for a bit of internet shopping try
Wheels - SummitRacing.com

be carefull when looking at us prices as you have to add shipping costs and duty then vat on the total, and that will ramp up the price
since the later sedona seems to share pcd with a lot of 4x4 types

maybe some 4x4 bling will fit the bill

Glenn,

noticed that! I can get good trade rates for shipping so thats no problem...save having to cross reference the strange names our american cousins give their 4x4s to find a uk equivalent!!....hummer 22" chrome two-piece with gold plated rim bolts, now theres an idea........

Glenn,

I don't think so - scottish roads being what they're like!!!

I also keep looking at the two sets of E39 BBS split rims I've got in the garage (for a future e34 525sport project) and now wonder about hub adapters.......be cool though!!!

now, to find a wide arch kit for the black beast....

out here in Australia on work, I keep looking longingly at the Grand Carnival (lwb version of the UK sedona)....some serious underfloor space for hifi and subs, not to mention the lumpy 3.6(i think) litre V6. Only thing thats a let down is the top speed for such a powerplant...my 2.9 diesel (albiet chipped...) is a good 20mph faster, with more acceleration too. they must really choke these babies with emmision controls out here!!!

Its actually 3.8lt.......

As said before, have a look at 4wds. I know that Nissan Patrol rims will bolt onto a Grand Carnival.

Some say I have no mechanical sympathy. They are wrong, I always feel sory for the cars I drive.

The factory alloys in the USA are 17 inchers. The 16s are steelies. Surely you could hunt up some factory 17s somewhere?
