Alloy wheels to fit nissan qashqai



I'm a little confused? I have a 2011 ntec with 18" alloys and the normal wheel does NOT fit into the recess if you have changed the tyre. When I say it doesn't fit, it doesn't even vaguely fit and the carpet in the boot sits very high!

Craig, sorry for stating the obvious but have you removed the foam insert from the boot? The Tekna has a foam surround which when removed will permit a spare wheel to be fitted. Don't know about the Ntec but am sure other owners will advise.

When you say "normal wheel" do you mean the same as the other four on the car? if you have one of those then it has been bought seperately from a breakers or ebay etc. If the car comes with a spare it is the 16" space saver (regardless of car wheel size) which is narrower than an alloy & the wheel well is designed to take this.

I also have a 2011 Ntech and purchased a full sized alloy spare wheel and tyre, it fits perfectly in the boot with the foam insert removedraises the boot floor approximately 2", so I made a plywood panel with 2" wooden packers as the new boot floor. JOB DONE.
It isnt so noticeable and is far better when travelling to have a proper spare wheel (especially as I regularly tow a caravan). I read a report a couple of weeks ago from a qashqai owner who ran over glass on the M 25 totally trashed the tyre which meant a 2 hr wait to be removed from the motorway on a breakdown wagon.

An alternative to the ply false floor is a 2" slab of flooring grade polystyrene. I used it on mine and have an almost perfectly flat floor. I used Jablite from B&Q, it's grey and very similar to the Nissan supplied infill. Easy to cut using the infill as a template and 3 round slices glued together with silicon sealant to fill the wheel recess.

I got caught out working on a sewage treat,ent works in Barking last week. Noticed I had a puncture and on investigation,no jack,wheel brace or spare

Tried repair kit but didnt do the job as when started to move the car I found an inch square piece of steel in the inner shoulder of the tyre.

Don't want to get caught out again so sorted trolley jack, torque wrench and 21mm deep socket but question is what spare to get and where from.

Do you have to replace the compressor after using the latex repair kit and where is the best place to get the kit from?

I see comments ref sub woofer. Is this something that can be added and is the wiring already there for it on an n-tec?
