That will differ based on everyone's taste. I like mine flush or a little sticking out. For that I need 19's or 20's 20 x10 35 offset.

Unless you have or can get 20" tires cheap, Id pass.

225/35/20 is waaaaaay to small for the maxima. Trust me.

The offset isnt bad, but it can be a whole lot better.


Edit: Just noticed the tires arent mounted, if you can get the wheels for under $350 it may not be a bad move.

I'll look around for you a little. I have a knack for finding deals.

Default Re: Best Offset For Our Car?

No such thing as a 'perfect' offset for any car, define perfect...

Everyone has a different definition of perfect.

We need to know what your goals are first.

Are you tracking the car? For show? DD? Are you dropped? slammed? stock height?

Do you want to roll your fenders or no? Do you want 20s or 18s? Do you want the wheels to sick out past the fenders or fit without rolling? Do you want a wide wheel or just a regular 8 inch wide wheel? Do you want to run fat tires? or stretched tires?


Once we know your style, and goals we can help you out.

Like the others have said already to lower in offset you go, the more 'flush' the wheels will sit.

Default Re: Best Offset For Our Car?

I actually really want the G wheels KCMaxx is selling but My deal this weekend didn't work out and I won't have the funds til the end of the month. I assume since he ran 3mm spacers that got him flush I should be ok with the stock offset until I lower it. I would prefer 18's just cause the tires are less to replace and I need all season. It is really just looks. I couldn't track this car as it is my family ride. Can't worry about breaking anything...yet...
