I know that I can run up to 19x9.5 but what problems come with getting bigger wheel?. If I wanted to do 18.8.5 or 18.8 would that hurt my car?

Who the hell is running 19x9.5...

The heavier the rim, the more wear. Notice i didn't implicate size. 18s are fine.
19s are the max I think!! From what I've seen at least, not saying anyone would run it but they could fit. Thanks so much for the info!

17x8.5 is the sweet spot for rim/tire with the b15. 18's ridiculous. 19's ludacris. 20's don't even try it.

I did run 18s...don't remember the width, but it wasn't wider than 8, ran with a thinner tire to maintain oem radius...never again due to tire size, unless I'm looking for max side wall stiffness and turn in response.

I have a set of 57 pros 18x8 I would sell. I think they looked pretty good but most people prefer 17s on the sentra.

15 vs 13 slick same dimensions just obv 1 is 13 1 is 15, sidewall is 1” taller on 13” so it helps with launching the car and better 60 ft. Race car problems no low n slow here LOL

Haha you trynna run drum brakes up front? I think you will have plenty of sidewall with a 15". 13" is about as extreme as 19x9.5 lol
