I have looked at those myself and like both the black and the gold which I think would look good with my Salsa Red Pearl but the gold might be a little too bright. I don't buy anything on credit so it'll have to wait until finances permit. You will need lug rings and wheel locks from what I can find out but hopefully someone with experience can supply information

I have 15" Konig Rewinds on my box and IMO they look good. You will notice that they have an awsome ride compared to bigger wheels.:D

The Rota Slipstream will need a 54.1mm x 67.1mm hubcentric ring and I am unable to find any place that sells one.
Do people mount after market wheels without using hubcentric rings?
Ideas? Opionions? Comments?

as far as lug rings go..you just need tuner lugs..they're a bit longer and can be purchased from any auto shop...should be like 50 bucks for a set..and they should come with a key..cuz they're locking

I have these on my Sentra. They're lightweight & are decently strong as far as taking lateral, axial, & vertical loads like a champ that they are subjected to in the canyons. I haven't busted one yet. (^o^ ) <3

But yeah! All you need are some 205/55-15 tires on the 15" x 6.5" Rota Slipstreams or 225/50-15 on the 15" x 7" Slipstreams & you're good to go! You can also do 205/55-15 on the 7" width wheel. Gunmetal, steel grey, or bronze would look really good on your TCM box. ( ^_^)

Thanks for the valuable information!
I was going on what info I was able to find which seemed to say that the xB used hubcentric wheels so if you replaced them with after market wheels you would need the hubcentric rings.
Now I know everything I need to get.

you need hubcentric rings. i sold the slipstreams to that guy whose xb is posted above. they are 16's so yours will be smaller. i got the rings from discounttire.com or something. let me know what else you need to know.

I don't need hubcentric rings just tuner lugs ?
I need hubcentric rings ?
Next question: Considering the length of tuner lugs will the center caps fit over them?

Thanks!
I'm just an old guy(66) that is cautious about spending money. Hub rings seem to make more sense than just using tuner lugs. I will have to get tuner lugs that match the wheel color.
