Considering swapping 2012 car for a new one.
Can anyone tell me if the wheels from the previous model will fit onto the new one as I have a perfect set of Alpine A4 winters 215/60R16.

I would guess the answer is yes. I did this with the winter set of alloys from our Juke. The dealer checked it out and said it was ok and did the switch over for us last November and no problems at all.

If its full wheels then shouldn't be a problem. Pretty sure Nissan use the standard 5x114.3 PCD, so as long as the offset and hubs match you're good to go. But if you're just wondering about switching tyres then you'll need to clarify that they're the same 7x16.

Thanks for help, dealer has today confirmed they will not fit due to
1) conflict with the brake calipers
2) different pcd and offset

So it seems if I change the car I have to change just about all the extra items --- Winter Wheels -- Tow Bar -- Mats ect

Just looking into wheels a bit more and I think the dealer may not have know what he's talking about here.

I'm pretty certain that they wouldn't have changed the PCD on the new QQ from the standard 5x114.3

I also doubt that the dealer would have tried swapping the wheels, so in the interest of sales he's just blanket poo-poo'd the questions.

I doubt he would have taken that line for two reasons
1-- he knew it could (and did) result in me not going ahead with the deal on a new car
2--he knew I bought previous wheels off ebay and Tyres from Reiken,so he would not get the order for those if I went ahead.

His only profit would be in selling me a new car.

It also seems the new cars use a TPMS with valves inside the wheels that my existing ones do not have, although these are made by Conti and can be obtained now from Germany for about 110 all in

I agree with cantfindausername here. I believe the PCD on all models 2008 on is 114.3mm. Nissan wouldn't go to the expense of retooling for new hubs when they've been reliable for years!
