Wheel Fitment
 
Okay so here it is,

I have gone through all the threads and posts trying to figure out what fits and what doesnt. Here is my issue, I am in college right now and my dad is at home going to meet people from craigslist and going by some shops. I need to know what wheels and offsets and everything fit my 04 Maxima. It is on the stock suspension right now but I do plan to lower it (progress/kyb gr2).

I have the recommended tire sizes per Tire Rack (245/45-18, 245/40-19, 245/35-20) and the bolt pattern is 5x114.3/5x4.5. I am looking for some 18, 19, or 20" tires and rims. If i find anything just by the tire size would it work? I am finding a lot of wheels coming from IS300s and 350zs but the tire size is 225 or 235...

My biggest issue is I do not want to have to drive home just to try on some wheels that dont work. I do not want anything that sticks out or sits too far in because I do not want to use spacers or adapters. If someone has some advice that would be great because math is not my strong point lol. (Thats why I am a Philosophy major and Information Systems minor)

Thanks in Advance everyone!

You've got all the right specs.

Search craigslist with 5x114, look for offsets no higher than +40 or lower than +30 (depending on width), or just ask.

If you are searching TireRack, and Discount Tire Direct, and you search by year/make/model, it should show you the offsets/wheels that will fit.

I have been searching tire rack as a reference but I'm trying to source a wheel+tire package through craigslist to save some money. Thanks for the help KC. One more question, if I buy a rim with a 275 tire, would a 245 tire fit it? ... I'm finding a lot of staggered fitments from 350s and g35s..

It all depends on the width of the rim that the 275 tire is on...just because a 275 tire is not it, does not necessarily mean that a 245 will fit...the tire sidewall height comes into play here too...

and keep in mind, a 275 will fit the car as well as long as the wheels specs are right, so if you find a nice staggered set, and you really like them, just make sure the specs are good and you could still throw them right on the car.

Has anyone tried these? http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...#ht_6674wt_877The deal seems almost too good to be true.

It's not really that good of a deal. Those wheels are about $150ish-200 a piece.. So $600-800 for wheels and $400-600 for tires plus shipping. You can find that deal in local tire shops bro. Save shipping money for something else.

Im talking to some local shops now and working on finding a deal that way. I would rather buy new wheels and tires now because I am getting tired of meeting people from craigslist that say the wheels are perfect with "normal wear" and then one rim is peeling and they are all curbed/scratched.

Ok just to update: I ended up going to Butler Tire and getting their wheel and tire package. I forgot the name of the tire but the wheel is here: http://www.tsw.com/img/alloy-wheels-...ck-std-700.jpg

Hopefully they get here next week.

Thanks for all the advice everyone!
