Hi! New to the site but I've decided since I couldn't find any info on this, I'd write it up for other users. I work as a mechanic at a Nissan dealership for 3 years now and just bought myself a 2017 Titan SV 4x4. LOVE this truck. I've been adding mods recently and I scored some 20" XD wheels (and the RC 2" leveling kit, of course). But there are some big differences to consider. The Titan XD bolt pattern is a 6x5.5 and the studs are M14x1.5 with MAG SEAT lugs. The non XD Titans come with the 6x5.5 bolt pattern BUT has the standard Nissan M12x1.25 studs with ACORN lugs. So with that being noted, my next finding was that the XD wheels had no offset. So I got some bad caliper contact. I fixed that with some hub-centric 1" spacers that had the non XD Titan bolt pattern. With the spacers, the wheels sit perfectly flush with the body, just like the oem Titan 18's. Everything is going according to plan. Then I noticed it. With mag seat wheels, the diameter of the "stud holes" on the wheels are pretty tight as far as stud clearance. As you can imagine, the XD wheels had quite some slop since it sits on a M14x1.5 studs originally and I mounted them on my M12x1.25 studs. Now I mounted them and test drove it. So far, so good. I have 20 miles on this new set up but will keep updating this to see if it lasts. Luckily with mag seat lugs, it relies on the washer or flat portion of the lug nut to clamp down, unlike the acorn relying on the taper at the end. I did a brief comparison between an XD lug nut part # 40224-1LA2B and the mag lugs I ordered to match the Titan thread pattern part # 40224-JK00A. They are the exact same in size other than the thread pitch and stud diameter. So I will keep everyone posted. If you are considering some XD wheels, just know, for an oem look you'll need 1" hub-centric spacers and also lugs nuts part # 40224-JK00A from Nissan to get them to fit. Added before and after pics ?
