IMHO, 215 is too narrow for our car, even the Base version. I would stick with no less than the factory-spec 225 up front. Good luck, and welcome to the club.

So I have an 09 touring package wth the stock enkeis. I have foud the rims I want for the car:

BBS RE RE-Mg ACQ Forged Magnesium Rims Wheels - The Tuners Group

18x10 in front, and 18x11 in rear with either toyo r888 or hoosier r6's

What would be the best tire widths for a track setup and would the front rub at all? I'm also going for lightweight so any other rim suggestions are welcome.

Anyone know the widest wheel widths our cars can handle without any complications? I'm thinking of getting my wheels widened at least an inch all around... they have the same dimensions and offsets as the stock 19" Ray's & I'm running 20mm (front) and 25mm (rear) spacers.

I know there are some people on this forum that have 11 inch wide rear rims. My volks are 20X9.5+35 Front and 20X10.5+10 in the Rear i don't know if this helps.

Thanks... I already know those widths work because that's what the stock Nismo Ray's come in... but what I'm really wondering is if I could go half an inch wider than that.

Does anyone know if the OEM Maxima 18" wheels will fit? I am looking at buying some for my winter setup, they are 18x7.5 +40. Thanks in advance!

What do you guys think of these for a winter setup..
They are 18x8.5 37 offset. I want these for winter and if i do eventually try to drift.

Do you think they will fit over the front sport brakes?

I would go with a 9" wheel to give you more tire options.

Depending on the tire brand and on your suspension setup the answer is yes and no.

We need more details...
