Does anyone have these wheels or experience with "Maxxim" brand?

I'm thinking about purchasing these for my 2008 4 door after I get my old car sold.





Anyone have them, or have experience with the brand?

How are they?

I like that their the same size as my existing steel wheels, so I can just have the new tires swapped over.

It says those are 16x6.5
We have stock 17s on LX and stock 18s on V6
..... but never heard of the brand... maybe do a quick google search of "reviews Maxxim wheels" or something of the like.

Tirerack tells me that OEM tires are 215/60-16

The ebay ad says maxxim is a brand line of Konig. But yeah, I'll be doing some digging with google before I buy.

If you have 16" wheels, you must have an LX Sedan.

Maxxim wheels are, in fact, made by .

For aesthetic reasons, I suggest you go with at least 17" or 18" wheels.
There are many others on here that will recommend 19" minimum.

I appreciate it, but I have a 120 mile a day commute, and will be chewing through tires. 16" are a lot cheaper to get, and make for a better ride. Plus, I can use the existing tires that came on the car, the dealership just put on new ones before I bought it. No sense in wasting $400 in tires.

Stick with 16's if you want to reuse your current tires. Not a huge difference between 16's and 17's anyways.

If the wheels are made by Konig, they should be decent quality. I have Privat brand wheels and they are also made by Konig. Good wheels.

Thanks dude, good to hear.

I'm not huge on caring about the size, I'm just not a fan of the hub caps.

I thought about just keeping my old wheels and tires until I sold the car, but that will be years, and they'd probably dry-rot by then.
