10 inch 370 all the way around

I took the front wheels off and replaced them with 370z rear so I big boys all the way around on Hankook 245/35/19. It is so fun to drive now. I also went with this size tire cause it really made a difference. I finally feel like the car drives like a champ.

Did you paint your grill? If so, did you do it yourself? Trying to minimize the chrome on my black 2013. Thanks.

Also rockin Starry Night RGB chasing halos and a Motordyne exhaust and ART Y pipe that sound great when paired together.

looks nice!

Anyone ever seen a 7th Gen, or heck any Gen Maxima with these old school D-window type wheels? I absolutely love them, but only ever see them on trucks and SUVs.

would a 20x8.5 or 9 work with s 30mm offset on a 2013?

Il be lowering her soon with eibachi springs, and wanted to upgrade wheels from stock 18s to 19s , I think20s is a bit too much and the meat if tire is so much less. Plus if I lower her I want a nice stance. Any thoughts ? Thanks

Apologies for my ignorance but recently a buddy gave me a set of snow tires/rims he had for his Q50 for my 2012 Maxima.

I was wondering whether itíll fit... it would solve a lot of issues having to buy snow tires and rims. They read as 225/50R17 98V.

Not sure if theyíll fit but i believe stock for maxima are 245/45R18 96V.

Can someone please confirm? Or do I need to sell these and buy a new set?

Thanks, mine is black on black, seemed to make sense it would have come with dark rims.

Any advice on selling these silver ones and getting some charcoal or just search ebay, etc and sell separately?

Yeah im not totally sure why

i would keep keep them as spares , I sold mine for around 900$ Used with minor curb rash with all season continentals,

buying them new will be pricey,
but check OfferUp, fbmarket place, eBay, and even scour junk yards

If you you keep it on the current suspension you should be fine

If you drop it you will notice

20s are nice but if u drop it on eibachi springs they will rub. I got 19s on and I'm dropped. Still got plenty of tire cushion and ride is good.

Smile Eibach Lowering Kit

So I had Nissan install the Eibach lowering kit and i'm using 20X9.5 and I don't have any rubbing what so ever. And this upgrade is the best thing I've done. The handling is unreal. No lift , no sway. Yes you feel the road more(not that much more) but who doesn't want that. You do have to be careful with curbs and raised parking lot entries and exits. here is a current pick. there is about 1" clearance now.

I'm thinking of getting 20's 20x9 with offset +38 wrapped with 245-40-20 b/c the streets here in Dallas Tx are terrible. I wonder if that'll cause my ride to rub. (Currently stock setup)

@2theMAX2014... Which tire series are your rims wrapped in and any rubbing with additional riders? And with your current setup, is re-alignment necessary?

I'd like to know this as well... I have some 20's wrapped in 255/30/20 tires but some shops are resisting to mount them due to the "integrity" of the then side wall, well that's what Discount Tire has informed me. Plus the streets here in Dallas are full of potholes so I'm not taking chances. I'm looking to purchase a set of 245/40/20 tires to wrap my rim in. I know ppl usually use 255 or 245 /35/20 but I'd like that add a little more meat for ride comfort. Any suggestions are welcomed...

Painted Stock Wheels.
Wife's car. NY roads suck (and my wife has a habit of hitting potholes) so I figured I'd just paint them and save the money for tires
