    decent price, shipping is high. But it's not real original.

    Yeah, not too worried about that...I'd rather have a low-key factory look than anything blingin' or overtly performance oriented. Just something simple and clean.

    I don't think they'll fit if I'm not mistaken due to the bolt pattern, size, and offset. However, I could be wrong.

    You should get the Z wheels on the Maxima, if you can afford it, usually run around $700-$800 for the set.

    Don't need wheels, but I've told myself that the next time I needed tires I would pick up some cheap rims. Been meaning to do it for a while.

    I actually want the G35 sport rims, but I don't want to fork out the ~$500 for rims alone, no tires either. So these would do.


    BTW my stock 15's are ALLOYS not steelies! :madfawk:


    :big grin:

    What's really embarrassing is opening the hood of an Acura and seeing "Honda" on the valve cover. :hsugh:

    Does it fucking matter? :dunno:

    :hsugh:

    1) The Infiniti I30 is the exact same car as the Maxima.

    2) The Z wheels are the ones with the offset problem, and the staggered widths are useless on a FWD commuter.

    Use the 18" stock wheels from a mazda 6. Swap centercaps and you'll be cool.

    Matter, no.
    Look :greddy:, imo... yes.

    Its a logo of a car company, other then the one you drive, on your car.

    I agree with the honda/acura thing too.

    Well I don't really care that much, it's not like I'm trying to put Infiniti badges on my car in place of the Nissan ones. And anyway, Infiniti is Nissan, after all. But maybe I'd find some Nissan center caps if it annoyed me enough.
