Wheel Well Trimming

The stock Xterra comes with the equivalent of 29.5″ diameter tires, and you can go up to 31″ inches with out batting an eye but if you go larger your probably going to have problems with the wheels rubbing the fender.  With 32″s you’ll just need to trim some plastic in front and behind the tire, all you need a is a razor blade and 20 minutes.  If you go larger you may need to trim metal, and if you don’t have a 3″ suspension AND 3″ Body Lift you’ll probably be rubbing the top of the fender at full compression.  Basically 33″ tires and up need alot more trimming work than 32″s and below.fendertrim
