Rims: Opinions Needed

Now I'm completely aware that when it comes to rims it's basically all about personal preference/taste, but a little opinion from others is good to get...I came across these wheels last night and since then they have become "the ones" I'd like to get...

Also, if there's someone who can work some photoshop magic by doing a quick photoshop of these on a silver Maxima to get more of a visual reference I'd greatly appreciate it....

Those would definitely look GOOD on a maxima and it'll work since it's a 5 lug. What's the dimensions on that? IMO you should go with the 20's

Definitely go with 20's if you can. With that lip, the rims will look like 17's which are way too small for 6th gens.

Agreed. Pass if they're 18's.

Those are SICK! Like the design on those

Make a thread and post some pics when you get those on. Interested in how they look on the car.

I have 18s on my 04 right now and hate them, only got them because they were a steal. Definitely go with at least 19" if you can but try for 20" will look much nicer. Really like the rims though good choice.

Well, that's going to be the limit. Any bigger than that would look ugly. I've seen a couple that had 22's and they look good on a 6th gen

I have 20's. Looks great. Rides great. (Eibachs/Stock shocks/struts) I wish my 20's had a 2" lip though... Mines about 1 1/4"...

18s look small on the 6th gen. 22s look too big. 20s fit it beautifully.
