Well, I was curious so I looked online and sure enough its on its way. The 2017 Nissan Sentra comes packet with all the nismo goodies including a 1.6-L DIG Turbocharged engine, . A NISMO-tuned suspension, structural reinforcements to the chassis and a lowered stance combine for improved handling, 18" wheels, larger front brake rotors, plus a whole heap of extras.

I'm looking for volk te-37 18x7.5's

i would suggest at least an 8" wide wheel on the nismo
from what i have experienced they will easily pull a 245/35/18 tire

and re-71s are purrrrfect for this car
they really stick and are one of the most popular auto-x tires around here

the te-37s are the classic race wheels
most appropriate

imo

volk will give you a chart to fill out
measure back space hub size, strut clearance
yads, yada

and how to do it
talk with them on the phone

the advantage of custom wheels is the help you get in proper fitment
and the often perfect results

they have some standard sizes that may work for you too
i always have discussions with the people who make parts for my car

i feel i get better results that way
just my experience.

i'm an old drag racer
so i had centerline make some forged special offset wheels for me

i believe they saved the whole car and me.
when i had to jump a tree trunk, fallen in the road,
escaping a tornado

note dent
not collapse

team dynamics in England made some special offset wheels for my drag slicks
worked perfect
note fit around wilwood brakes

and all together they were my fav drag wheels

Go wider than that man, don't be scared :D

Go as wide as possible IMO, you won't regret it.
