Arrow opinions for 370 Nismo wheel spacers

Hey guys,

was looking at my nismo today in the parking lot , and mmmm looks like the car needs front and rear wheel spacers !
any recommendation ? i know its comes with a pretty nice offset out of the factory but im looking for a more aggressive offset.

i was thinking of : 15 mm front and 15 mm at the rear....

what do u say ?

How far do you want to move the tires? 10mm? 20mm? 30mm? See how easy that was.

I think from raping and plundering the37OZ.com site that 20/25 is the max without running into rubbing issues!

If you want to go flush what I did was hang a Plumbob from the center of the fender. I then measured the distance from the center/fatest part of the tire to the Plumbob string and presto! That was how big of a spacer I needed to be flush with the fender.

Wait a minute you did this yourself? This practice of members measuring the distance between tire and fender has got to stop!

well im looking for a more aggressive fitment while avoiding rubbing issues...
so i don't want to go with 15mm spacers at the rear if i can run 20 mm ones without facing any problems ....

no one is using spacers on their Nismo 370z ?

Did you figure out to ask in the 370Z section, most of use are driving 350Z's that post in the "350Z wheel & tire" section.

Silver wheels are 15mm spacers all around, the black wheels are without spacers:





Not a huge difference but it does look pretty good either way

Default 30MM atleast

30mm atleast because that gives clearance on the wheel studs!

Once the bolts are torqued, they are going to be around fourty nuts!

No rubbing with 18s on the 350Z.

30mm, gopher two.
