I'm trying to get some rims for my B14 Sentra in that emerald green color. I'm still exploring tons of options but I think I may have decided on these:



in 17x7 form. Comes with 205/40/17 Kumho tires or 215/45/17 Kumhos for $50 more. I don't plan on doing a drop at the moment but time will tell....

Does any1 have any experience with WheelMax.com? How about the manufacturer of the rims (1st is Nakayama, 2nd is Exel)? Is this another cheap knockoff site? Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks!

Dont EVER buy from asylumms they dont return calls, dont answer e-mails, have bad service anyways, take a long ass time to send your stuff (that is, if they send it) and have a bad reputation everywhere.

You have been warned. Anyways, what does the site have to do with his rims?

Why not the 215/45s?
Get the 40 series tires. They'll keep your instrumentation more accurate. 45 series will throw off the rolling diameter of your wheels.

Mine are Motegi MR7s. I got them at pep boys for $125 ea (16"). I think it's $145 for the 17s. I like them alot especially for the price. I was actually going to get the kind you posted up but for $500 a set, it was a pretty good deal. They have these in silver, white, gun metal and I think polished silver.

Hey look at this....it's pretty phat: http://www.tires-n-parts.com/wheels/motegi.html. Click high or low bandwidth depending on what you're using, then see how the wheels look on your car, depending on the manufacturer. There are several different manufacturers there. This is similar to TireRack's simulation thing, but this one seems alot more fun for some reason. Maybe it's because you can also simulate a drop on your car:D.

I found a good deal on the Motegi's here, so I think I'll be shooting for those. As you can see, I'm still debating between 16s and 17s.

I've heard that there are only maybe 3 or 4 manufacturers of rims and they sell them under their own name as well as other manufacturers'.

On a side note, once I do get rims what else do I have to do besides put them on? Is there any kind of realignment that has to be done to the shocks or anything?
