can you expain why? i live in new york so i am concerned about potholes. the dealer says the taller sidewall would protect from bent rims or blowouts.. any thoughts??chimmike said:on stock suspension yes there's enough...but 215 will be better.
thanks for the info! so does this mean that a 225/45 will fit? i know it will be an exact +2 fit,and will this mess up my speedometer?sr20dem0n said:yes it does, actually the 215 will have a smaller sidewall
the number for the sidewall height (the 45) is a percentage of the width, so a 185/45 will have a MUCH smaller sidewall than a 285/45 even on the same size rim
it does, actually.NickZac said:
yes it will throw off the speedo slightly, but it will be in the range of 1-2%. Considering the stock speedo is only accurate within ~5% anyway (if that) then it shouldn't matterdevo said:thanks for the info! so does this mean that a 225/45 will fit? i know it will be an exact +2 fit,and will this mess up my speedometer?
i will be going aftermarket.. oem setup is 195/60/15. i spoke with many people and they assured me that if i go +2, 215/45/17 it will fit but if i opt for the 225 it will not. does your friend have other problems with that setup... like potholes and such??sr20dem0n said:one of my friends down here with a spec has 225/45/17, he had some problems with the outside of the tire rubbing the fender on bumps but he has aftermarket rims so the offset might be different than stock. I'm pretty sure it will fit, but don't quote me on that
ok slightly confused. stock rim size on spec v is 17*7. the same size i want.skatehard90 said:P215/45ZR17 (Z-rated) tires
17" x 7.0" 6-spoke aluminum-alloy wheels
since the sentra special edition can come with the looks of a spec v . . . the tires from the spec v will fit your car (04 1.8s sentra).
225/45/17 tires-----> 10mm wider and 4.5mm taller than ---->P215/45ZR17
now this means it's bigger than stock. . .but not much bigger. . . chances are it might conflict with the fender if the offset is different. . . AND! ----> you would have to get the stock off set as well. . . because since the numbers aren't so far off with that increase tire size, you might easily pull that set up off. . . but i don't know the offset of the spec v's wheels
so find out what that number is . . .and match it with the rims you are wanting. . . than match the tire size and you'll be rolling out with a unique set of wheels!
have a nice day
alrighty then. . . since you want the stock rim size, there will be no offset differences: therefore. . . those tires will definitely fit the wheel well.devo said:ok slightly confused. stock rim size on spec v is 17*7. the same size i want.
