2004 – 2015

The first generation Nissan Titan has engine 2 configurations.

The first generation Nissan Titan also has engine 2 configurations. The 200HP 5.6L Titan uses either a 265/70R18 or 275/60R20 on either a 8Jx18 ET25 or 8Jx20 ET23 rim The much more powerful 390 HP version of the Nissan Titan uses 265/70R18, 275/70R18, or 275/60R20tires and has a rim size of either 8Jx18 ET25, 8Jx18 ET23, or 8Jx20 ET23.

What Does The Tire Size Mean?

The first number on  the tire is its width in millimeters. So, a P265/65 R18 tire has a width of 265 millimeters. The second number is the ratio of sidewall to width. So, that means that a P265/65 R18 tire has a sidewall height of 1172mm (265 * 0.65).

The letter is for the tire’s performance. R is more-or-less standard, while Y or Z-rated tires are ultra high performance.

The final and most familiar figure is the tire’s internal diameter in inches. Everyone knows this one. If P265/65 R18 tire has a 18 inch internal diameter.

Generally speaking, a rim can take a tire with a slightly different width than the original tire had. There is much more room when it comes to the sidewall ratio, as that figure can vary somewhat widely and still be compatible with a given rim.

Properly Tightening The Bolts

A Nissan Titans use 6 lug nuts. As with any other vehicle, these nuts have to be secured in a specific, crisscross pattern when you mount the wheel to the truck again. This information is commonly found in the vehicle’s user manual, but for the sake of convenience, we went ahead and put it here for you.

Tightening your lug nuts correctly is of critical importance. If the wheel is not tightened down enough, it could break off from the vehicle which would be catastrophic to say the least. If you over-tighten the wheel, it can make it hard to get off next time and it can damage components.

First, tighten the lugs with a hand wrench first. But wait! Don’t tighten the lug nuts down all the way just yet. If you tighten them down now it will be hard to get each lug torqued down to its proper level. So, just tighten each one of your lugs about halfway.

After that, you’ll need to tighten them with a torque wrench to the proper ft lbs. The Nissan Titan uses 99.5 ft lbs of lug tightening force.

I cannot stress enough how important this one is: Make sure to check to see if your lug nuts are properly tightened after 30 miles or so. If any of them come loose, tighten them down one more time and do the test again. If the nuts come loose at all again, then you more than likely have a warped rim that needs replacing.

When To Rotate Nissan Titan Tires

Tires typically last around 75,000 miles or around 5 years. After this amount of time, the rubber that the tire is made of starts to decompose. There are cases in which this can happen a lot sooner, and there are certainly times where it can happen a lot later, but eventually you are going to need to replace your tires

Make sure to rotate your tires long before your tires wear out. In fact, if you rotate your tires properly, your tires will last a lot longer before you need to replace them. For the Nissan Titan, it’s best to rotate your tires every 7,500 miles. Rotating your tires is simple.

All you have to do is move the front tires to the back and move the back tires to the front, but swap the left and right sides while you are doing it.

Knowing the Nissan Titan lug pattern is important, and rotating your tires is just another example of that. Another thing to consider is the fact that when you are rotating your tires, you will have access to all the inner workings of each one of your wheels.

This gives you time to take a look at your brakes and other things that are usually obscured by the wheel’s presence.

Conclusion

Even though Nissan makes really reliable trucks, there is going to come a time where you need to know your Nissan Titan bolt pattern.
