I have owned, and own currently a Nissan. The OEM for the Nissan products we had were Nissan made, or Brembo. There are a few others, but a new one to hear AC Delco as OEM for Nissan. Could be so.

Nissan has never used AC Delco as a parts manufacturer. There are several
Companies that do make parts for other brands and AC Delco is one of them. I
Suppose trying to increase their profits. Think about it almost every aftermarket
Parts manufacturer makes Domestic car parts which I'm sure cuts into
their sales. So AC Delco jumped on board to do the same. I work for a
Nissan car dealership as a parts salesman and have for over 25 years. So I
Have seen auto parts for a long time. Actually Motorcraft also makes parts
For other applications as well just not as broad of a market as AC Delco.

Lots of parts crossover between makes

Jeeps used Buick V6's in the 60's. The Geo Metro was the Suzuki Swift. All Mazda trucks of the last 12 years at least are/were Ford Rangers. The Mercedes-Benz 4speed auto transmission from the 70's/80' a 50's GM TurboHydromatic design with an aluminum housing.

I'll bet that the Maxima's rotors and spindle are the same size as some GM products of that size or smaller. The SAE/ISAE set forth design standards that have been around for years. IE spindle from Brand X has to meet the same material strength standard as Brand Y even before it goes into production. Rotor X must be diameter Y and thickness Z of Q alloy for a 1600 kg vehicle etc.

To paraphrase Smokey Yunick, the part don't know what brand is on the box.
