Default Wheel And Tire Sizing Options / Possibilities / Solutions!

I came to possess an 04' SE back in January, and I've come to my6thgen looking for advice or tips on what parameters my search for new wheels should confine too. I'm looking to upsize my wheels (current ones look small despite being 19" in diameter) I'm looking to do new wheels and tires at the same time [tires are below 40%]. I'd like to not change/adjust anything else besides wheel and tire size- if I don't have to. I don't mind a slight negative offset. I'm not to concerned in a reduction of performance, as long as a change in wheel size doesn't result in damaging the vehicle. My budget is limited.

I've come across numerous tips and options, but things seem to contradict each other.

My understanding is:
- Stock SE has 18", 5 x 114 Bolt Pattern, 40-42mm Offset Wheels
- Stock SE has 245/45R18 (96H) Tires

Now my car has:
- 18" 06' Altima SE-R Wheels
- 245/45R18 (96V) Eagle RSA Tires

1010tires States:
When changing tire sizes, we recommend staying within 3% of the diameter/height of the original tire. Any more than this and you face the risk of brake failure.
Questions:
- What am I looking for when searching for tires and wheels? (Parameters)
- Do the front and rear wheels have different dimensions?
- Is brake failure a serious problem? Are there any solutions around it (if safe)?
- Which tire/wheel dimension combinations work?
- Which combinations do you other 04' SE Owners use?
- How much would installation generally cost?

Here are some photos:

I'm from Vancouver if anyone nearby is able to lend a hand

Any and all advice / feedback would be greatly appreciated.

If you lowered your car on springs and got 20's it would look perfect

It depends on the width of the wheels. Most likely you'll end up having to get 245-35-20

I had 20's and I didnt really like the ride too much. Some times it was a little harsh. I switched to 19's and I felt it was way better. I was able to go from a 35 series tire to a 40. That helped the ride a lot,it was much smoother.

A 30 series tire will have sucky ride quality for sure. Personally, I would pass on those.

What makes the ride quality 'sucky'?

I bought the Eibach Pro Kit on eBay for $279 with FREE SHIPPING and had this guy do it. He charged me $100. Not bad because Les Schwab Tire Center wanted to charge me $600. I like the way it sits compared to stock and painted my calipers black with MAXIMA decals. Click the image to open in full size.

The thinner the tire the harder it rides. I have 245/35/20's and it's fine to me. Not to bad

it really depends on how sensitive you feel your ride, me personally im slammed on coilovers at the stiffest setting on my Z and feel almost no difference from stock, ill be running 215/40 tires on an 18x9.75 soon so we'll see how that goes as too comfort, not that i really care much about comfort though


one day ill look back and say, wow i was very young, and very stupid...but for now ill just take very young

The sidewall size of the tire will determine how loud the ride will be. 35 series tire will absorb mode road sound, so you won't hear much. 45 series tire will absorb even more noise, which will make the ride even quieter.

With a wheel that's only 8.5" wide, you'll need at least a 35 series tire, not a 30 series, unless you're at a very low setting with coilovers. If you plan on only going with springs, I'd do 245/35/20 for sure.

And btw, 20's are not too much for a Max. They're just perfect fit and fill up the gap pretty well. 22" wheels are too much, but never 20's

215/40 on 18x9.75 is helllla stretched. You got pictures? I'm rollingg on 225/35 on 19x8.5 and I think they're a tad too much already.

It's all personal opinion. I personally don't like 20s on Maxima. I don't like the thin wall of the tire. I personally think the A34 Nismos look excellent.

BUMP. Any advice and inputs for a 17x7? What tire size would look nice with that? 205/45/17?

First of all, the bolt pattern on a maxima is strictly 5x114.3, unless you have a good quality adapter handy in which you can modify the bolt pattern to fit a 5x120 and other patterns.

A 35 offset is good standard step up from the stock offset and I have it on my car with my aftermarket wheels.

Unless you're looking to stretch your rims, call in and ask you nearest wheel and tire specialist about suitable tire sizes for your wheel in mind. You can also use the 1010 Tires tire sizing calculator (give it a google, I'm on mobile) to see which dimensions should fit your car, not exceeding 3% change in total size.

Hope this helps.
