Question Will these be compatible with my current tires on my car?

So I'm looking to buy some new rims for my '08 Nissan Altima S Coupe. I really like the Motegi Racing MR107's. I did some research and I am pretty sure they will fit but I don't want to just assume that before getting some other opinions. In my user manual and on the inside of the door it says that my current wheels are 16x7 JJ with a 1.77 (45) offset. It doesn't say the bolt pattern in the manual or anywhere that I could find. I know that it is 5 bolts though. The tires are P215/60R16. <-- I don't really know exactly what all those letters and numbers mean The MR107's are 16x7 also with a 5x114.30 bolt pattern. The backspacing is 5.77. And it says the load rating is 1600 lbs. Does anyone know if these will fit okay? And does anyone have any idea how much it may cost to have them installed? Thanks so much for all input! I am a newbie to car upgrades!

That bolt pattern matches up just fine, I don't see any reason why those wheels shouldn't fit. Typically people run into fitment issues when they run wider/bigger rims possibly alongside modified suspension to lower the car. You're fitting wheels and tires of the exact same size as stock and it doesn't sound like you've touched your suspension anyway. Your offset also matches up perfectly (which is not an issue for fitment, typically, but can cause issues for your wheel hubs if it doesn't match closely).

Altima wheel specs: Nissan Altima 2008 - Wheel & Tire Sizes, PCD, Offset and Rims specs - Wheel-Size.com
MR107 specs: Motegi Racing - Wheels

The cost of installation depends -- are you getting new tires or reusing the old ones? A tire shop might cut you a deal and install them for free if you buy new tires. Otherwise I'd guess maybe $50-75 total for mounting and balancing, you might be able to find a better deal though.

Thank you so much! This is exactly what I was looking for! I was hoping to use the tires I already have. I know a guy who owns a garage so maybe he'll give me a deal on the installation.

Yeah, you should be able to reuse the tires. The wheels are the exact same size.

Glad you found my advice helpful. Good luck and enjoy!
