A friend had these on his GN... 9" wide rears and (I think) 4" fronts. Looked WAY COOL!!! Lightweight, too!

I prefer these myself. They kinda lend that matchbox car look, since they're 17" I need some wheel spacers to get the rears out a little.

The size of the wheels are 16x8 and the B/S is 4.5". I got these because I am lazy
They do look good but after cleaning the stock wheels for 12 years I wanted something that was easy to clean.
