Get 225/50R17 on wheels (alloy/steel) that will clear your brake calipers and won't hit suspension parts.

The long answer:

You won't know for sure which wheel will definitively fit unless you either a) test fit them yourself, and/or b) get the exact same wheel someone else with the same car as you has already tried successfully.

I used the wheel-size.com calculator and I think a 17x7.5 offset +50 wheel should work for you.

You can also use the services of a tire shop to see their recommendations, which also takes the liability off you in terms of picking something that doesn't fit.

P.S. My first car I ever owned was a 2002 Maxima SE 6MT. That was a fun car to drive!
No 225 50 17 is wrong size and 225 55 17 is correct size for 245 45 18 alternative. As far as calipers as concerned it shouldn't be a problem unless you have 4 piston big brake calipers. Get any 17 in rims with correct bolt pattern with offset 45-55 and use hub rings if necessary.

Question for the experts:

I’m sizing up (slightly) on the width of my rims from 6.5J to 7J , will I need new lug nuts?

Prices seem to have gone up a few bucks. About $5 more per tire vs. a couple days ago for rft viking 7s for my bmw. Anybody else find a 12 percent coupon that works?

You're right, I mistyped the wrong size. (The link had correct numbers though.)

I had some problems finding rims to clear my calipers on my GS350, which were only 4 piston calipers. Not sure how large they are on the current gen Maxima.

Should I buy a set of Kumho HA31, drive it for 2-3 years and get a new set, or spend 2x the money on Michelin Cross Climate 2 and hope it'll last more than 5 years?

Prices definitely went up as well. I have a screenshot from the long weekend and now it's $45 more for 4 vikings in 225 50 18. Both with the 10% promo.

I decided to go with an all-weather tire instead of winters/summers this time around and bought some Michelin CrossClimate2's today (not from blackcircles.ca though.)

These guys are fast. I ordered around 9pm on Thursday and the tires were delivered sometime this morning without any shipping notification or anyone ringing my bell.

the reviews and michelin's own descriptions suggest the crossclimate is not for serious winters. if you buy them, you will drive slower, more carefully , and they will still behave like cheap winter tires.

ordered the x-ice snow, have blizzaks from 2015 which suck so bad, got stuck on snow and ice.

Well, it's a 4 seasons tire. So, no, they are not for serious winter conditions. Like all 4 seasons tires.
Pourquoi pas?

That is what usually happens when people procrastinate and cry for a time machine.
