Default Will These Work? 18x9.5 +25 or 18x8.5 +30 Offset

hey guys Im a new owner of a 04 maxima SL, looking to upgrade my wheels. currently running stock suspension but will be doing a mild drop (springs) came across some wheels XXR 522s and am having a hard time finding out what will fit my car without having to cut or roll fenders. here are my two sizes I am debating on:

18x8.5 +30 offset or a 18x9.5 with a +25 offset, what will fit my car with stock suspension and when I do a mild spring drop? i like the concave look so thats why Im choosing this style wheel setup
as well what size tire would you guys suggest I run? and no stretching of tires bc its a daily driver and will be run on the highway as well.
any help would be great, thanks guys

The rears are close. You might have to roll the fenders.

so when you say the rears are close which size are you referring to? I'm going one size all around if possible no staggered look so I am trying to figure out if either of those two sizes work for all 4 corners of my car.

The offset. I had 19x9.5's +30 and it was almost perfect. I still rolled my fenders because it was very close to rubbing.

I believe you can do a 10" with +30 without being to aggressive. By this I mean rubbing issues.

What's the widest you can run up front? Assuming a +30 offset, or whatever is correct. This would be without rubbing and/or needing to roll.

I don't think I've heard of anyone going wider than a 10.5" or 285 upfront. You never know though...

Alright guys after much thought I've narrowed it down to the following, what will give me the better concave look I'm going for?

18x8.5 30mm offset or 18x9.5 38 offset? I'm lost in the offset game especially with this new to me Maxima I want to ensure I pick the size which won't cause me grief.

8.5" wheel with +30 offset will be flush with fender. You can even use a 3-5mm spacer and being it down to +27-25 offset and you'll be fine with 245 width tire.

9.5" wheel with +38 offset will be in a bit more. You can use 255 width tire and use 5-10mm spacer to bring it down to +33-28 offset and you'll also be fine. If you are not shaving/rolling fenders in the rear, I wouldn't use more than 3mm (= +35 offset) spacer in the back. You need to have enough space between inner fender and tire edge to avoid rubbing

Ok thank you for that insight I appreciate that very much. So either choice I could run on all 4 corners and shouldn't have to do any fender rolling or shaving then?

Great to hear then, should I still stick with the stock 245-45-18 tire or go down to a 40 series?

Are you lowering the car? or is it lowered already? Either way, they're only 18" wheels, so stock size is fine.

Will be lowering yes but a mild lower as it needs to be daily driver for wife as well so can't be extreme, may even do the front lowering spring mod to even out the cars ride height as I've read up on a guy doing it and the car looked good. Anyone else try that here? He got Altima front lowering springs as they are identical to ours.

It's not too common to just do fronts. You have to remember, the wheel wells are different sizes so you can'tt go with front v. back to compare ride height.

Can't remember about Altima springs. I know it's been discussed but I don't remember the opinions...

Bump!

Yes I know, I understand I have lowered a few cars in my day but with the sag ass in these cars I don't want this thing dragging ass on the ground if you know what I mean. So a minimal lower in the rear if possible bc after I saw his front lower, I wish I could find the Link now so I cold show you it actually matched really well for ride height, kinda reverse if how we level our trucks to bring up the front to match the rear.

As for the gap, the car might look like it's dropped more in the back, but actually it's not. The way the fenders/quarter panels are designed, the gap/space they have for the wheels are different. The front wheels turn side to side, however, the back wheels don't.. therefore, they don't require as much space from the fenders. Many springs offer slight drop in the back compared to higher drop in the front. If you read each spring specifications, it'll say what the front/rear drops are.

If you want to be able to regulate the drop height, then I'd save up and get coilovers. That way you have the ability to adjust whatever height you want front and back.

Yes that is true coilovers will solve that issue for sure. Just thought I'd bring that up see what you all thought of it.
