Hello all, new here and hoping for some help. Just finished paperwork on a 05' Aztec Gold LE and they are locating the vehicle now. Nissan offered a 20" and 22" wheel upgrade but I didn't like the styles too much and dealer markups are usually a bitch. I would like to slap on some 22"s and was wondering what max width will fit on the Armada? 10"? Anyone know the right offsets off hand? I don't want the rims bulldogin out from the fenders.

Lastly, ride quality... how much of it is sacrificed when stepping up? The Supra rides like a stagecoach on rials with the 19"s and coilovers but that is what I was going for, I still want the nice ride on the mada.

Thanks for any help!

I dont know too much about the Armada specific, but the stock offset is +25mm. If you go a wider tire than stock, go towards a more neutral offset, like +20 or 15mm.

Rim width is meaningless. You need to match the rim width to the tire width, which counts. You also need the offset to work, which the rim guy can help out with or just follow above. Makers list what size rims fit their tires width wise. Pick your tires, then get the correct width. Mine fit 9-10 inch width rims with 9.5 perfect. I have 9" which gives me a little more rubber buffer protection. Smaller than 9" and the tire will pucker and possibly blow a bead. Wider than 10" and the reverse happens, though you again may blow a bead.

If you want street only tires, you can get something like a Kumho Ecsta STX. A 305/45/22 is 32.7" diameter(basically the same as stock), 2" wider than stock, and takes a rim 9.5"-11.5" with 10" preferred.

Not a big fan of street tires on a truck but I hope this helps. ;)
