What you need is a car that can fit a 22" rim. The largest rim you can safely put on an Altima is 17x6. The main reasons are A: You won't have to lift it, B: You can get enough tire sidewall that you won't murder the ride quality, it won't rub on things and it won't look stupid. Nissan spent millions of dollars designing the suspension around the stock wheel and tire package, so screwing with it to fit enormous rims is just going to make the car handle like crap.


In short: Sell the 22s and buy rims that actually fit the car.

well thanks for the advice, but I know all that. And didnt ask for personal advice on the car, just what is needed to get the LIFT done. Thanks for the useless advice though

It's not useless advice it's that the tread is useless and tasteless. Is there even 22 inches of wheel well for the wheel to fit in. I guess you could Take a Sawzall to the Fenders and Quarters till they fit. I mean who needs brakes or suspension anyway since they won't do crap with the wheels added weight.

It's not useless advice. We're telling you what you need to do to have a car that's actually safe to drive. Fitting 22s is just going to ruin the ride and handling.
