I would like to get a set of winter rims and may have found a set of 16x7 rims (see below) originally from a bonneville... Will these fit on my SSEi. I didn't know if the brakes were too big for the 16" rims or not.
Let me know
Here'* what they look like.
I would prefer to stay with 16" rims as it is cheaper to find snow tires for them.
No..the braking system on both cars (SE, SLE, SSEi) is probaby so similar, the cars weigh almost the same. However you would need to maintain overall tire height, so the sidewall profile of your "winter 16'*" will have to increase!
Yeah I know all about the proper outer diameter and all, just didn't know about the braking systems between the models (SE, SLE, SSEi) because so much of the stuff you buy for the brakes is model specific.
The guy that I was going to buy these rims off of is being alittle picky about only wanting to sell them with the tires on them and get his money out of the tires as well. I don't want the tires so I think I may buy a set of the 17" honeycomb rims like Rogue has for his second set. Only have to figure out how much more $$ the winter 225/55R17'* are going to cost over the winter 225/60R16'* that I used to have on my Intrepid.
Well, it'* a moot point. The guy selling the 16'* doesn't want to separate them from the shitty *** tires he'* got on them and I'm not about to spend $100 more for tires I'm going to throw away nor am I going to spend the extra $$ on shipping for the added size and weight of those tires.
I can get the 17" rims for $100 cheaper (set of 4) than the 16" and pay $75 less on shipping to boot. Seems to make sense to me... Only thing now is I need to find some nicer lug nuts (acorn style) in either black or chrome. I believe that the lugs are 12x1.5mm. Am I correct? How long should the lugs be and does anyone know where I can find them fairly cheap?
