Wheels spacers on an SE-R?

I searched......

I'm just looking for something a little bit more aggressive looking, just one of those things you don't notice it's been done to the car until someone points it out. I was thinking like 10mm? Does anyone know if that would fit fine in the wheel wells with Prokits and 245/45/18 tires on stock rims? (I don't have the springs yet but I do have the tires, I'm just trying to plan it out before I get it the springs and spacers in and they don't work together).

Any help would be appreciatied.

i dont think they would fit in the rear. i dont even thin those tires would fit with the springs. i look at my back n it just misses rubbing with the fender. I have the stock tire sizes 225/45/18.

i like your idea though. i think it would make the car look more aggressive.

I'd like to point out that the wheel spacer will create unnecessary stress on the wheel bearing. Its like having a rim with an offset thats a bit too low. If you do any kind of racing, or if the roads there are bad, your wheel bearings will be gone before you know it.

Just something to consider.

do you mean when you put your maxima or 350z rims on our alti's then the wheel bearings will be affected because of the offset?

You want to put on wheel spacers just for the look?
No.
Not only will you NOT have enough thread to safely secure the wheels back onto the OEM studs, you effectively put a 265mil wide tire under the wheel well (as it pertains to the fender edge). 10mm spacers are way too much for any application, and almost always require an aftermarket stud with longer thread length. The increased offset will put stress on your bearings, as stated above. The rear will rub with a moderate drop, too. My first point should be enough to convince you otherwise, though. You won't even be able to lock the ****ing wheels on... and even if by chance you catch a few threads and they hold, they will fly off your car when you start driving.

Correct. If I remember correctly, the lowest offset that the Altima is specified for is +35. +30 is a tad bit too low, but will not affect the bearings all that much if you only drive on regular roads, especially if the roads are in good condition.

The reason why I got rid of the Z rims was because I wanted to start auto-crossing. After a little research, I decided to get rims with a higher offset (the +45 nismo rims were perfect).

I completely see what you're saying. I want an aggressive wheel look, but not at the expense of my suspension or overall safety of me, my car and the people around me. That being said, I can't imagine 5mm would make much of a difference as far as thread space and stress on the suspension goes. You seem very knowledgeable, do you think this would be a good compromise?

Its not exactly stress on the suspension that you need to worry about. Its stress on the wheel bearings. We already have shitty wheel bearings to begin with, so using rims with a very low offset or spacers would cause them to fail quicker.

Given that the entire weight of the car is distributed among the wheels, 5 to 10 millimeters will be a HUGE difference.

For this application,
Moment (Torque) = Radius (length from the pivot point to the force) X Force
