    Not huge difference, but 10.25mm of rubber extra!
    Ok, I see you know your stuff! That would be a great size, but I still think the 18'' would work great and look better too.
    Good luck with whatever you do and please post pics if it happens!

    I have a set of 4x100 rims that fit the bolt pattern, but they are 17x7". Are any tires I put on them going to bump the inside of the wheel well?

    Maybe I am asking the wrong question here, as 17x7" rims seem relatively popular, what is the max tread width? 205 seems to be the widest ITT, is 215 doable and if so is 215/45 (24.6") going to clip?

    What's the issue? I didn't look closely, but the few alternatives on 17" should range between 7.x" and 8.x" wide. I'd probably recommend something like 205/45R17. You can probably fit easily as wide as 215s. If you worried about the width, I wouldn't too much.

    You will probably need a stiffer suspension so the course won't make them hit the wheel wells. Just take this in factor (and the higher cost of rubber of course).

    But you can always send them to me for a good 2-3 season test, and I'll let you know.

    If your suspension is stock you will have no problem with 215/45/17 unless your rims have some crazy low +'ve off set numbers. See show car at the start of this thread for some 205/40/18 42mm offset rims, with a tire OD of 24.43mm. Lots of clearance and that car is lowered.

    Please post pics of your car when you get tires on. So many guys here getting wheels /tires and no one post pics! WTH?

    They are 43mm offset, so 215s should work I suppose, I'm worried cuz I once had slightly too fat tires on my. JDM Pulsar that clipped the inside of the wheel wells on extreme turns. It was only ever a difficulty when parking but was a tad startling.

    The wheels are Akita AK-77, and I'm stoked to see them on the car once it (eventually??) comes in. I will def take photos, as I'm excited at the prospect of my red and black coordinated ride.

    Edit: anyone know where to get the old-fashioned red and blue Nissan emblems in the appropriate size?
