I know some have put stock chromed Infiniti QX56 rims on with Nissan centers. It's the same offset and bolt pattern. The guys I know who did it checked with their local Infiniti dealers and bought take offs (some QX56 buyers upgrade wheels at the time of purchase and the dealer keeps the old rims).

what about us "red headed step-children"?

Anybody know if the 05's have chrome factory wheels yet in a 17 inch diameter? I like my BFG's in 285 70R17 but would like to upgrade to nice "shiny" wheels.... :)

NOPE, the only 05 which comes with Chrome wheels stock is the "Texas TItan"....and as you can tell by the name it will only be sold in Texas!

Well, hopefully somebody will keep their eyes open so that if the Nissan "chromies" come out I can get a set for my Armada....

Hmm I think Nissan should have changed out everything with the smoke. It looks like theres a bunch of brake dust on the rims with the new smoke color. The body color is hot though ;-) Woulda picked it out if my dealership could locate one w/ the options I wanted. I'm not a big fan of chrome, but I think chrome wheels would look nice on any Armada, especially the darker colors. It fits with the rest of the body.

So I was thinking of swapping out these smoke rims for the same ones in chrome. What ya think?

Damn, its nice today!
I think it would look sharp. When you pull up to one of those sugar white beaches on the Gulf side and the sun hits them you'll Bling.

I grew up a little way from Panama City in Destin. I sure do miss it.

Anyways I digress... I didn't see any chrome swappers for the LE six spoke 18 inchers. I'd like to trade mine also. My Armada in smoke and the rim color are a little to much the same. I like chrome so hopefully they will offer the trade one of these days.

thats exactly what I thought when I bout my 05 Armada, ( brake Dust ), but it was already too late, my fault I have already signed the paper work, But the dealer recommended that I Take it to a tire shop and get aftermarket Rims, so I did, and exchanged my 5 spoke smoke rims with a stock not aftermarket 6 spoke Nissan chrome rims and paid $500 difference, two months ago the Chrome started to peel on one of the rims, I went back to the tire shop and showed them the peeled chrome rim. they did put an order for another 6 spoke rim. untill today and after many calls asking for my rim if it has arrived the tire shop manager told me that the guy who chrome the rims has not received a stock rim yet. my mistake was I did not get a copy of the order that he did put in for the rim. and now my remaining three rims are peeling as well. and called the tire shop and told him that, and he said that he will put another order for the remaining rims as well. I do have a bad feeling about this. I appreciate any suggestions on what should I do??
