I am looking at getting some Rock Creek wheels to replace the ugly standard wheels on my 2017 SV

I do know that the physical size of 18x7.5 are the same for both wheels but the Rock Creek tires are 255/60/18 and the standard SV tires are 235/65/18 tires..

can I just swap to the Rock Creek wheels using my standard SV tires (less than a year old when I bought the truck) or do I need to go with the 255/60 size tires?

You should be fine, especially since both wheels are the same size. Nothing has changed except the styling.

I have used 255 65 18 on my 15' paty and they rub a little when you turn.

If you do find a set, definitely remember to post a picture, those rock creek wheels look super nice.

Nice, are you replacing them completely or painting/wrapping the chrome?

Thanks!

I'm replacing them completely.. already installed the front grille, lower bumper trim on front and back and door handles.. I ordered the tailgate trim piece above the license plate but the order was cancelled being it was on backorder so I will probably wrap that piece...

all thats left is the rear badges... not messing with the roof rack since its too expensive..

buy once cry once is my motto lol

Question for you, are you installing the rock creek fender flares? If yes, do you happen to have the part number?

Thanks again!

$1500 for fender flares !!!, are they made of gold?
Wonder if Nissan does this to prevent other people from adding them to their non-Rock Creek's....

I recently bought some rubber fender flares to cover some rust on my old Mazda 6, they come with a heavy duty 3M backing tape and only cost $20 on Amazon. This could be an option.

$60 per...wow, what a difference. I will seriously consider it.

Share picks once you swap the tires.

Cheers!
