Any second gen wheel will fit but why? The Pro4X style wheels that you have are by far the best looking.
I like to have a second set of rims for a dedicated set of snow tires.

Are you sure any set of 2nd gen rims will fit? Are they all 16", like my Pro 4X?

Thanks

Yeah, a second gen steel wheel from the base model X Xterra. The 17" wheels fit too, they just use a lower profile tire.

Remember, you'll need new set of TPMs and re-set/re-program of sensors ever year unless you just black tape over the warning light during the winter.

Can you explain further?

Thanks
Not sure of other models but the Pro-4X has Tire Pressure Monitoring Sensors (TPMS) attached to the rims to indicate when the tires are losing pressure.

If you bought steelies/rims that doesn't come with those, you'll get a warning light on your dash which is annoying to some but it's tolerable if you just ignore it.

Downside is that you won't know that you'll have a flat since there are no TPMS's in your winter rims.

If it's just for spare or winter tires, I say no need to get them since they are expensive.

More info here after a quick search:

A 6x4.5 bolt pattern.....or to better answer your question.... any Frontier, Xterra from 2005-now and Pathfinder from 2005-2012. The Suzuki Equator of the same years will also work. They vary in size from 16" to 18" but they will fit.

There are also some 15" rims on Frontiers but they don't fit. They were only on the 2WD I4 trucks and have smaller brakes.

If I put the steel rims on for the winter, and the indicator light goes on, does it go off when I put the stock rims back on, or do I have to have it reset?

Thanks
