Help me choose:
1. TL 17s for 300$
2. 2008 Infiniti G35 - 17inch - 300$


1. Found a deal on 2005 Acura TL wheels locally, with 215/50/R17 Kumho All season tires...
From what I read, these wheels are a direct swap for a 06 Accord Coupe.
2. 17inch, 2008 Infiniti G35, tires are GoodYear Eagles 225/55/17

Please lemme know how much they are worth and is the tire size correct?

Here is the link for the Infiniti wheels,

Can't look at the pics as sign up is required.

The wheels are worth around $3-400 if in excellent condition, the OEM tires for the TL wheels are 235/45-17, 215/50 is the stock Accord V-6 tire size on 7.5" wide rims, the TL rims are 8" wide.

300 is what he is asking for the wheels...

Do I have the change the tires anytime soon? I read in one of the forums that the tires must be 235/xx/r17 so I am a little confused....

235/45/17 will look better. 215/50/17 will work for now.

This will be my first time buying wheels, Can you explain the difference between 235/45/17 and 215/50/17 :dunno::dunno:

The 235 is the width of the tire and the 45 is the ratio of height to width of the sidewall and the 17 is the diameter of the wheel. So basically the differences between the two tires are the width (the 235 is wider than the 215) and the aspect ratio of the sidewall (45 is smaller than the 50 so you'll have a tad more fender gap). Ideally the wider tires will most likely offer better performance due to the larger contact patch, but the 215's will also do just fine. :thmsup:

Thanks for the advise guys, I picked up the TL wheels today.

Will post some pics soon. BTW, I think I might want to lower my car.

Can somebody point me in the right direction...

Thanks.

Guys, I need some advise here....

Whats the right tire pressure for these wheels?

and also I feel the ride a little nosier than before. Is it just my imagination or am I missing anything here?
