I have a 2007 Titan and it suggests P265/70/R18. I have found
32"x11.5" Kumho Road Venture KL71
15"x10" **** Cepek DC-1 wheels (black).
Will these work? I'm confused.
They are the right bolt pattern, awsome price, and look sweet.

I had looked at those rims but, without a lift kit, because of the offset and backspace measurements they would have caused the tires to rub. You can do a search on here to learn more. There is a bunch of information on the topic and that's what helped me through the process. Basically those measurements determine how the wheel, and therefore the tire sit in the wheel well. Having the correct bolt pattern doesn't mean the wheel will work. When I was looking at the DC wheels I was told that about 4 to 6 inches of lift would be necessary depending on tire size. Here's a couple links to get you started.

So should I just go back to stock size? When I bought the truck the previous owner had replaced the stock wheels with 22" rims with low profile tires. The truck is useless for anything but dry pavement. I went to a tire shop and the guy told me 18" rims are rare and expensive. For the cheapest plain winter rims and winter tires I will be paying $1800CAD + tax. dosen't seem right.
