My Infiniti FX needed new tires. This was an opportunity to change the standard 18 inch rims.
I did not seriously consider going to a 22-inch wheel. The larger the rim, the smaller the sidewall. Smaller sidewall, lower the aspect ratio. That means less sidewall flex, therefore a harder ride.
The FX ride was already as firm as I wanted it.
An option on this vehicle was a 20-inch rim. For me, this visually provided the best compromise between rim and tire size.
A 20 inch rim it would be.
The requirements for the wheels were modest. 20 x 8.5 inches offset 35mm. I did not want chrome wheels, rather a finish that blended with the look of the vehicle.
I chose the KV5 Wheel manufactured by Sport Edition along with P265/50R Bridgestone Potenza run-flat tires. These are original equipment tires for the Infiniti FX Sport Edition.
Below are some photographs of the wheels and tires.
