Default Dmans new Altima

Well, my truck's transmission died, so I decided to buy a new vehicle (the truck was killing me on gas, I was getting rid of it anyways) The dealership gave me a good deal on this car since it was the last 2010 they had on the lot. Came with pretty much everything except for navigation. Need to get the windows tinted and I think I need to get bigger wheels, like 18's or something, the 16's look funny on the car imo.

Drop it, add exhaust and intake and win.

Some nice Dishless 18"s would look great. Nothing crazy or too blingy imo. Then a good custom exhaust and it will sound great. A simple lowering kit would be good for looks and handling too, but will sacrifice right quality.

It'd look good lowered I guess, but its my daily driver/work vehicle, it also has a 6 year bumper to bumper so I don't want to screw with it to much. The wheels are really the only thing that bug me about the car, looks like it has 14's on a monster truck or something. I intend to get a secondary car to screw with, still looking for one though.

I say go with 17" wheels. 18"s may work too.
Or just leave them stock *shrug*.

18's work, its an option from the factory, nothing bigger however. It looks a lot better with bigger wheels.

Tires look way to thin on that. I'd personally stick 16 and go for a bad ass look (like my wagon, lol), or go 17".

Nice car.

CVT?

I'd recommend wheels but i'm a bit of a doofus with rims.

Yup its a CVT, and I'm really impressed with the CVT fuel economy/performance. The 2010 altima also comes with a 200K km warranty on the CVT, they changed it back to 100K km on the 2011 model.

How would you feel about these on the car?

2005 (to 2007) Subaru STI BBS wheels. 17x8 in either gold or silver.

Can be had for about $500 without tires, which I think is pretty good.
