Default 370Z Front Hubs on 350Z?



Hello all. I have read about folks putting 370Z rear hubs and axles on 350Z that ends up widening the rear track but I would like to know can the same be done with the front? I have 370Z Nismo wheels on my 350Z and it requires a 10MM spacer and longer studs and I would like to come up with a solution to run the wheels without spacers. Will the wider hubs work or is there another way?

Ps I love the look of these wheels thatís why I didnít buy aftermarket with proper offset. Got that out of the way.

Interesting thought. I'd be curious, just for the sake of knowing if Z34 hubs would work without screwing up the 33 front geometry and subsequent changes in steering response. In the meantime, I run my LMGT5s (and all three sets of Z34-specific) wheels with 20mm bolt on spacers with effective +20. Works just fine.

Looks good. The only thing I worry about is (I have been told by a couple shops and individuals). That wheel spacers are not reliable in the long term. However when I installed mine we sanded the hub, rotor hat and cleaned all surfaces. Installed 10MM extended lugs then the spacers (Z1 6061 Billet with Hubcentric lip). I havenít had any issues but i just wonder if there is a better option to running the wheels I want.

You did it the right way over bolt on spacers for sure. There's no downside/issues to extended lugs and slip on spacers whereas the bolt on spacers do require attention from time to time just to make sure nothing has worked its way loose or the lugs aren't galling on the spacer's studs. But I change my wheels often enough that I don't worry about any of that as it all gets taken care of changing the wheels.
