Do you have different wheels?

Hi all,

I don't think the std gt alloys fit the car that well, they need to fill the arches more. I'm thinking of replacing mine but don't have any ideas on what size or type.

So do you have non std alloys? If yes what size are they and if poss post some pictures.

Thanks.

can you post some pics of the wheels you have now? There are different versions of the standard wheel on the GT and you can probably find pics of different wheels on this forum in the member pics section. Additionally, if you google Skyline 350GT or Infiniti G35 coupe wheels you will find loads.

Hi,
I will post pictures then it's back.
The problem is if you Google search most of the pictures are usa cars and they have different taste in wheels.
And pictures on this fourm doesn't give details of the wheels.

Not the best photo to highlight the wheels but Japan Racing JR3 9.5/10.5 +22 all round 245/35/19 275/35/19 mild stretch all round, lowered

Not 100% flush but almost, rear arches are rolled.




350z stock rims with 25mm spacers all round

Hi, what very low and looks great!

So you have 19" fronts 9.5j and rear 10.5j with 22 ET offset? (sorry just trying to understand wheel details).

How did you lower it?

Thanks.

Thank you, it's my daily (ish) driver so I can't get only lower as Swindon/wilts/Gloucester roads can be less than forgiving haha

Yes that is correct, I've run different setups in the past but this is the one I'm most happy with, car is lowered on conceptua shocks and tenzo R springs...it's a stiff drive. I have some bc coilivers which may go on but it's likely I'll change cars this year so we"ll see

Enjoy your GT

Yes I know what you mean about Wiltshire roads. I'm in Calne and would love to have look round yours.
Any more pictures of the 350z wheels with spacers? Did it drive only with these wheels/spacers?

Maybe this is the route I should take as 350z wheels are cheap to buy!

Thanks.

I see it's up for sell now, it's a shame that you didn't say you were going to sell about a month ago.

Hi,

I run 19x10 ET35 + 20mm spacer 275/45 rear and 19x8.5 ET35 + 20mm spacer 245/35 front

...I've just had a look and got no pics at 'standard' height (mines on air suspension) but here's one of her aired out to show how much wheel these arches can swallow! Bear in mind no arch mods, no chassis mods, standard suspension/control arms, just fitted kit and she went all the way down till chassis hit the deck!

Hold up, found one at sensible ride height... although looks like I dropped the front a bit there.

Thanks.
