The tracks are each 48 inches long and 30 inches tall, giving the Altima just a bit more height than usual.

There's also a 3-inch lift in there to ensure the tracks fit in the first place.

To make the tracks look good, Nissan gave the concept some wild 7-inch fender flares that help divert four rooster tails of snow away from the body.
