One thing the OP should also look into is if he/she is planning on getting a trim level that includes rims larger than 16 inches to consider getting 16 inch rims/tires for the winter set. The increased sidewall depth will help better protect the wheels from damage caused by potholes and chunks of ice that tend to drop from cars.

The bolt pattern is 5 X 114.3. The same size wheel (including offset) and bolt pattern is used on newer Sentras and the Juke, and older Altimas and Maximas, so there's plenty of cheap used sets on eBay or Craigslist to choose from.
