I like this on the NX! Similar to the Verde Axis wheels on my IS. How's the ride with the Nittos?

Ride has been pretty good so far. Noise level is same as the factory Yokohama's, which is virtually nothing. Handling is a bit more sensitive which i like!

OZ Leggera HLT 18x8 +35
GT Radial Champiro HPY 255/55-18

Surprisingly grippy tires for the price I paid. I don't think it's readily available in the US though.

That's fat rubber on 18 inch!

Champiro tires do exist in Canada, but not sure about the US.

Found the stock 225s giving too early whenever I drive in our mountain twisties here. Had to maintain the 18" spec so I can continue driving carefree on our cratered roads.

As for the Champiro HPY's, great bang for buck, with the only downside being road noise and sidewalls a little on the stiff side (which I prefer, actually).

Default Reply to emoowear on tire pressure

I am running 20" chrome wheels and tires. I set my pressure, cold at 35 and they increase to 38-39 when driving. Note that I live in Clearwater, Fl and the temps here are in the 90's so that is about what I expected. I have run custom wheels and tires on most of my cars. I have had 58 cars.

Never run near the recommended max pressure. (51 psi) That is the pressure that if exceeded, could cause tire problems and even failure.

I love the chrome with the Nebula Gray pearl paint and flaxen interior.

Check pics.

Hi, I'm about to go pick up my NX200t AWD Fsport in a few hours. I have an existing 20 inch staggered set of wheels that I was going to swap over from my 2nd gen IS250 RWD. They are Niche Veronas. 20x9 5x4.5 +35 with 245/35/20 and 20x10 +40 with 275/30/20. Just wondering what tire sizes should I buy? Also I bought tmps sensors from Discount Tire, could those be configured to the NX200t? Thanks

Sweet congrats.

I got 265/35/22 on 22x9 +38 and I had 255/45/20s on 20x8.5 +35 prior on the NX. Both no rubbing. Not dropped.

My current 22" setup sticks out just slightly out of the mud flaps, but was flush with the prior wheels/tires. Both were still about a 1/2-3/4" inward of the top of the fenders. With your existing staggered wheels, the rears are aggressive so you should dry fit them first and see for any clearance issues...

If you will keep the staggered setup, for tires, make sure your overall tire diameter front/rear are the same to avoid AWD issues. Tires that would match perfectly to maintain the 28.6-28.7" overall diameter are:

f: 245/45/20
r: 275/40/20

Keep us posted.

Love your wheels. Great on the black.

I have the Nebula Gray Pearl with 20" chrome wheels and tires. Also added body side molding and lower rocker panel chrome. see pics

Would look great on that black.

Thanks, I really like your old and new setup of wheels. I did a test fit on the rear and it sticks out slightly. I may end up getting new wheels next Spring instead.

Is that all the way lowered off the jack? Or is still supporting it?

^^^ That's still supported off the jack at least 2-3 inches lifted. I have a similar jack...
