Hey guys dont mean to thread jack or anything, just want a quick answer.

I was looking at these Sport Edition KV5 on tire rack and they seem like a good deal. 18x8 35mm offset, and 23.5lb/wheel. do u guys think this would look good on a 6th gen? kinda reminds me of the 350Z wheels. Also, I can put 255s on an 8in rim right? I think ive seen it done


Thanks much.

don't know if you still need an answer, but 255 MIGHT fit, but its not recommended. widest tire for 8in width is 245.

hmm. the car comes stock with 245s on the stock 7.5in rims. Chern here has the OZ crono wheel, its an 18x8 with 35mm offset, and he has 255s on them. the tire does look fat on it, but he hasnt complained of any problems.

Waste of rubber, and it looks bad IMO. I think 235s look perfect on an 8 inch rim.

Hey guys - new here, just trying to sell some Mille Miglia EVO-5's. They look great on Maximas - they just don't fit my car (found out the hard way)

Here's a link to my xrims.com ad:

17x8, yes they look good. The rim design makes them look like 18s, especially from far away.

Can someone who owns these rims please:

1) discuss how "flush" the rears look, and whether you added wheel spacers

2) post pics regarding #1 if you have them

I'll be posting some pics of these rims in approximately 1 month!

In the picture I posted in post #48 above (which won't appear again until December because my website exceeded its bandwidth this month), I have 15mm wheel spacers in the rear only. On any 4th or 5th gen Maxima, 10-20mm wheel spacers are necessary to make the rear track width the same or slightly wider than the front. Stock it is narrower, which looks terrible. The Evos have a 40mm offset which is just about perfect for our cars. Definitely fills out the wheelwell nicely.

The KV5's have an offset of 35mm and the fronts are perfect, the rears would need a small spacer to make it flush, I would guess a 10mm spacer.

yep, there it is.. looks good. I'm guessing 15mm would do the trick for a 5th gen too.

I think the 5th gen beam has the same dimensions or very close, so yeah. Actually, the write-up I used had photos of installing 20mm H&R spacers on the rear of a 5th gen. The original site is dead but I found a copy with the photos: http://www.nicoclub.com/articles.php?id=157760

Here's the best comparison photo, 20mm spaced rear compared to stock. Keep in mind that the stock rims are more tucked in than most aftermarket rims, so 20mm with Evos or the KV5s is going to stick out a lot more than that.

Wow, that is a crazy low price for a set of original MM's I spent almost 2X that over Thanksgiving for mine with decent tires.

Did you try eBay? Also, you should post in the actual Tires and Wheels classifieds forum on Maxima.org rather than the Tires and Wheels discussion forum.

They're 18's - I'd really like to keep the tires, but I kinda need the cash either way ASAP.

Yeah - there's the 15 post rule for posting an ad in the classifieds... and no "off-topic" forum. I'm not a Nissan owner; but I know these wheels are popular for Maximas. 2 posts to go!

For what it's worth, the Evo rim style looks a size bigger than it really is. I can't tell you how many people look at my 17s and can't believe they're not 18s until they read the sidewall of the tire. 19s should look plenty big on a Max.

Do the stock lug nuts work with the sport edition KV5 wheels, or do they need tuner lugs?

If they need the tuner lugs, is there a place to buy just the lug nuts?

Thanks.

When you order them, Tirerack will give you new lugs for free.

I did see that on the tirerack website.

But if I by them somewhere else for less $ and they dont come with lugs, is there someplace I could by just the lugs?

I saw them on ebay at $200 for all 4 wheels brand new, but they didnt come with lugs.

Thank you.

Any Auto store should have them.

Make sure the ebay ones have the proper hub rings...

They are 18s. Told you they look big for their size! I wouldn't go any bigger, but it's personal preference.

245/40/18 General Exclaim UHP tires. I got the whole setup new from tirerack for around 1000 shipped.

The suspension is progress springs and illumina struts
