Ran 18s along time ago don't think I'll do it again, I went to what ever size tire kept me within OEM diameter with everything else being the same.

Somebody has run 18x9.5's before. I think Palma did but he ran a 215/40/18 iirc. Had to work the fenders quite a bit. Going that big of a setup will run into issues. Most of the guys stay around 17x8ish. Some have been running 17x9's with 255/40's but again, have to work on the fenders.

Sentra wheel wells are small, IMO 17's are the best looking size rim on our cars. If you have rolled fenders and aren't slammed you could run 18's like Molten said.... I'm not a fan of 18's on specs tho but thats just me.

18'S are doable, just not worth the skinny tire tax. I also like heaving meaty brakes to take up the space in the wheel and 18's started more and more to look funky. Once I got into the 17's, I absolutely think any thickness is perfect on the spec. Obviously like me 17x9 +22 took alot of messaging fenders to look good and not mexiflush. Otherwise I'd stay in the 17x8 range
