4 Bolt Wheel

Japanese JDM Tire Spec: 175/65/15 or 195/55/16

US Tire Spec: not 100% sure, correct me. Edmunds.com says "195/60R15" for the 2010 model.

Not sure that answers the question (you gave tire size) - bolt pattern is a metric unit that specifies lug nut spacing on a given wheel. Honda's tend to have a 4x100 bolt pattern and I am not sure what the Cube will have - possibly same as Versa?

It looks like it could very well be 4x100 in person, but at the same time, 4x114 is very close. I'm gonna keep my fingers crossed it's 4x100 for the sake of aftermarket wheel choices.

We'll have to wait for more info from Nissan on that. Have to know not only bolt pattern (4x100 or 4x114) but also offset to ensure aftermarket wheels fit properly.

None of the pics have shown a spare, or space for a spare, in the USDM Cube, and the JDM Cube does not have one.

I'm not sure, but I believe it MAY be a federal requirement for new cars to have them here.... (I'll look for this.)

When Toyota brought their JDM bB to the US one of the main modifications they made to the unibody and interior (aside from the LHD change) was to provide a space for a spare tire in the Scion xB. Hopefully Nissan would do the same in some way for their USDM Cube.

i found a pic that shows something that looks like a spare next to the muffler...if it is a spare, then it may be bad news flor the e4wd

If that's the space for a spare, it will definitely be a "compact spare" and it will probably require a lift-up panel on the floor of the cargo area to get to it. In one drawing of the interior there seems to be a thumb-notch at the rear edge of the cargo floor, which would go along with that...

(It also looks like one heck of a lift-over height with the way they have the rear door set so high above the tails.)

After exploring on the Japanese Cube website, I found the full owner's manual. I can't read Japanese, but there are diagrams on the location of a mini spare on page 216.
