heres a picture of the rim

got bored of my ugly rims that i have.. ive had the same rims for over 2 years! its time for a change for rims...
im not a baller so im going cheap $$$ but good quality rims! going flat black. the question is, should i go 20x8.5 (offset 30+) all around or go 20x10 (offset 32+) on rear ? cant decide.

couldnt find any altima coupes with XXR 521 rims. so here are some exaples of Gs-

Nice! I was gonna go with these wheels next year too, 18s though. I'd say if you're going strictly for looks, the 20x10s would look sexy as f***, but maybe you can do a staggered setup with the x10s in the back and the 8.5s in the front (yes I know the car isn't RWD, but I said if his car is mainly looks).

Be sure to post pics when you get them!! I wanna see them on an A/C.

i feel like 18s are too small. ive had 20s since i got the car! i would got down to 19s but XXR doesnt make that size. but you are right, mostly for looks! car has to look sexy too... lol

I honestly would say get 18s man. You are really bogging the car down with 20s. I would also say just go 8.5 all around. With the AC being a FF car there is no reason to be dragging more weight. If you are worried about the rear slipping then just make sure to get quality tires.

I use to be a looks guy but now I am def more function. So that's my opinion

I'd go with 18's > 20's. Is the difference of 2 inches wider in the back THAT hindering to speed on FF? I would say it isn't but I don't know much about the negatives of staggering on non RWD. I would stagger if you like the looks. Your car wont handle adversely unless you're racing and even then I bet it wouldnt be that bad, right? Or even better, put the 10's in the front ;)

i would go 10 on front also but i read review that it might rub so thats why im not taking the chance, ya know? but im mostly going for looks cause if you think about it, 2.5 engine isnt going to do much unless you drop some $$$ into your car.

Alright guys, I got myself a christmas present. Didnt post up pictures earlier because i had to roll my fenders from the back. Wheel was out about 1inch from fender! I went 20x8.5 front and 20x10.5 rear! I'm sitting on Eibach, that's why there is a gap in the front, hopefully i get my BC Coils by March.

Hey bro I'm gettin the same exact rims. 20x8.5 in front and 20x10.5 in the rear. Now I have to decide on tire size my friend recommended I went 225/35/20 in front and 255/30/20 rear. I do not want a stretched look and I like how the rims look on ur coupe. What are your tire specs? Thanks bro

I think blacking out or the chrome (bolts?) around the lip would look even nicer, or maybe even a different color.

I have the 521s too. Gives it a good look. I was thinkin of doing the same with the chorme blots too. Probably be cheaper to paint them yourself, but they have replacement bolts you can swap with.

235/35 or 235/40 would fit depending on your preference for sidewall height. You could go with 245 to provide a little more protection for your wheels. I'm running 235/35 on my 19x8.5.
How much of a drop you have will play a factor in tire size too.

Whether or not you will experience rubbing depends on the offset of the wheels you use, the width of the wheel, and the tire size you choose. The eibachs application for the Altima coupe produces a modest drop. Therefore, the springs won't likely be the cause of rubbing unless the your wheel/tire combo is grossly incorrect.

Is there a particular reason you're going with a 235 vs a 225 tire? Nonetheless, you will be okay since the wheel's width is modest.
