I own a 2014 QX60 AWD with OEM 20" wheels. I'm looking for a spare set of wheels for snow tires, and found some used 2009 FX35 OEM wheels, which are 18"x8" with +50 offset.

Will there be any issues fitting the wider FX35 8" wheel, onto a QX60 which uses a OEM 7.5" wheel?

Here is the OEM spec info I found:

14 QX60 20x7.5 +50 offset
09 FX35 18x8 +50 offset

Thanks!

Likely will fit, but will likely stick out. Given the difference is minimal I don't think you'd have rubbing.

I grabbed a set of 2013 Pathfinder 18" wheels for my winter setup.

You want to make sure that you use the correct lug nuts, your OEM is mag type, and FX35 might be cone shaped. The lug nut needs to be on for at least 10 full turns - the recommendation is that the engaged thread length must be the same as the diameter of the stud. So 12mm / 1.25mm (thread step) = 9.6 turns. I had to do the same excercise when putting a 2016 Murano wheels on my 2017 QX60.

Should fit. I had FX wheels on my 14 Q50 as snows. They were fine. Sadly they didn't fit my 16 Q50 RS b/c of the big brakes so I bought new wheels for winter.
