I looked at some SportMax wheels at WheelMax website and 2 others (just briefly) and they are the wrong bolt pattern. They said 4X114.3
That is the Versa pattern. Not Cube. Make sure you're looking at 4X114's :yes:

yeah I might have to contact sportmaxx and see if they can hook me up and have my cube demo the wheels for them..:)

I'm sorry but you are 100% wrong. The Cube uses the same wheel bolt pattern as the Versa which is 4x114.3 or 4x4.5. I know both Tire Rack and Discount Tire say 4x114 in the wheel descriptions but if you look up the same wheels on the manufacturers website you'll see what I'm talking about. I'm running 17x7 +40 4x114.3 on my own Cube.


Edit- Sorry I quoted the wrong post. Fixed:)

Are you positive about that? If that's right, then it's good you pointed it out because everyone will be looking for the wrong size wheels, including me. I hope that doesn't change my choices for wheels when the time comes. :mad:

100%. Looking up at my post, I hope I didn't come across as being harsh. Feel free to look at the wheels listed on Tire Rack and Discount Tire, then go to the wheel manufactures' websites. You'll find no listings for 4x114. The Raze I'm running are an 8 hole wheel with 4x100 and 4x114.3. We're definitely not using 4x100.

I am running 17x7 rims, bolt pattern 4x114.3 +40 offset. Tires are 215/45/WR17. They look great on the cube. Although, gas mileage is suffering by about 4-5mpg! The good news is the cube feels much, much more stable and planted. It handles more like a proper vehicle and less like a airport rental. The OEM 15" and 16" are great for gas mileage but no so much in handling and grip. If the gas mileage issue is not to much of an issue then definitely go up to 17" because it does make the car look and feel much better.

thanks for clearing this up!

Boxcar: How much room do you have with the brake caliper with ur +40 offset? Im looking to run as close as a 0 offset as possible
I'd say 3/8"-1/2" at most.

Not a fan of ****max/XXR wheels.

I always thought the point of wheels was to UPGRADE from OEM, not keep it the same or downgrade.
Ive owned Volks, SSR's and Works on previous cars of mine and I love the quality of those wheels. But for the cube, which is my daily, I will not and cannot justify spending a good amound of money on a high dollar set of rims. Sorry bud.

If it's a daily for you, why modify it anyway? Either way it's a waste of money.

Keep it stock, and save the money instead.

Steel wheels are stronger than cast aluminum.

And, i am willing to bet those cast aluminum chinese wheels are NOT lightweight, so you will probably LOSE gas mileage.

No worries, i was not trying to be an ass.

Check out the Enkei RPF1 if you want a blend of low cost and a higher quality, stronger, lighter (Compared to other cast) wheel.
yeah i own a 350z as well and do like the rpf1's but I dont know how they will look on the cube..

still no answer..i want to run a lowoffset rim...would this work?
Would you happen to know the stock offsets or would anyone else on this forum know the stock offsets for the 15" & 16"?

I can give you an idea once I figure out the stock offset. I can do some cad drawings with the stock & aftermarket wheel & tire sizes & show how much they move in & out of the wheel well. (^_^ )

15" x 6.0" +??
P195/60HR15

16" x 6.0" +??
P195/55VR16
