Default Wheel and Tire Combo Roll Call

Everyone has their own style and taste on this subject, but lets see if we can get the members to post what they're rolling on to give an idea of what popular styles and set ups are used.
This will probably help out other members in the future wondering what kind of set up is best and looks the nicest for their cars.

So normal , oversized , or staggered set ups. Lets see what everyone's got.

My Set up:

Late Spring - Fall: 20" ADR M-Sport Black Mesh Rims with chrome lip, on Toyo Proxes 225/35/zr20 Tires. - Great dry performance tires and have standard grip in certain wet conditions such as rain.


Winter: 2003 Altima S Alloy rims with 205/65/R16 BridgeStone Blizzak WS-60 Studless Snow tires, great in snow , ice and slush conditions. Although not very well in hard corners due to their soft compound.

17x7.5 Rota Subzeroes in Bronze wrapped in 225/45/ZR17 BFG G-Force Sports. I initially wanted the Rota Grids in Bronze but came across a great deal on this set up.

Normal...215/55/17...On Stock 3.5SE Rims.

Just got a set of Yokohama Avid V4s's and am pretty happy with them.

I was going to go woth a 235/50 to go a bit wider and maintain diameter, but I didn't want any added unsprung weight.

Also (opinion): Staggered wheels on a FWD is

Wouldn't mind someday shooting for a set of the lightweight Nismos with some 245/45/18's though...

spec v's with falken azenis 615.

Currently rolling on 215/40/17's as they were dirt cheap from a friend but will probably move back up to the 215/45/17.

Old set was powder coated American Racing Estrella's with Kumho Supra Ecsta 712's in 225/45/17. Good combo but a little heavy and wide. Had to trim the inner fender lip to make clearance and eventually changed rims to deal with the weight.

Altima was rolling and is currently sitting on these: 17x7 +45 00-03 Maxima 6-spoke wheels with 225/45/17 random used tires I could find at the time.



Altima will have these for daily driving (maybe): 17x8 +35 Enkei Evo 8 wheels wrapped in either Kumho Ecsta MX 235/40/17's or Falken Azenis RT615's in 235/45/17.



And lastly, for when I get it up to snuff and start tracking it, going to go with 18x9.5 +28 (or +22?) Volk CE28N's in either a 265 or 275/?/18 tire, OR Volk TE37 Magnesiums in 18x10 +18 with 285/35/18's. Tire type TBD, but since these will be race only rims expect some 40 or 60 treadwear sticky R-compounds.

I bought them for daily driving wheel, but I might sell them and get something wider like a 17x8.5 or 17x9 for daily driving. Not too sure yet...

I'm almost sure you can get those in 4-lug. Didn't the B15 Nismo Spec V's have those wheels too?
