Car started shaking and making noises. So we figured that it was the back breaks. We got new rotors, brakes, and calibers to fix the whole side of that rear driver side. Not sure what we did wrong but the car shakes more now and the brakes seems to be not working correctly. We followed the same set up and it still did not work. Then we took tires off and it looks like something is scratching the inner side of the rims of the tire. Please help....

If they don't look the same Than they are not the same. Thre are two different rotors for the fronts for this car. One is for vehicles with 15" wheels and the other is for the performance package pwhich would have 16 & 17 inch wheels.
Take the new rotors back along with the old ones and they should be able to figureout what you need.
It is possible for new rotors to be out of round and require turning with a brake lathe in order to make them true. More times than not it is not necessary but it can happen. Just in case the right rotors are installed and you still get a vibration,

Make sure the rotors (the disks that the tire rim are mounted on), are smooth. If they are rough, then they are wearing your break pads down. Even if the break pads are new, bad rotors will grind them down. Change the rotors...
depends if your car is disk or drum. if it is disk than you take the tire off. than you take the two nuts of the calliber and pound that off. than thier are two pads inside you just take them out. you put the new pads in than you put the calliber back on the roater and put the two bolts back in. after you do that put ypur tire back on and get in and pump the breaks until they feel right.
check your e-brake cables. make sure they are moving freely on bith sides. did you use a torque wrench to torque the wheels also?? unevenly torqued wheels can cause rotor warpage causing brake pulsation/shake. problems like this are hard to fix over the internet, without me actually looking at it my self. Rear brake setup on a maxima is pretty simple setup. I am just trying to think, what you could have done to cause this. Did the pads slipped nice and easy in to the slides??, when you were putting the pads in?? let me kno what you find and we will take it from here.
