I have RSR springs installed, very minimal drop ~0.6" but great spring rates. No clearance issues, there is less than half of a finger between the tire and the arm.

The wheels are Prodrive GC-010E. We are a Prodrive dealer and should be able to get this wheel. I'll look into price and availability.

Love the Prodrive. The whole lineup is great, wheels are lightweight.

Rear Fender rolled, and had to get adjustable camber arms & toe bolts to correct the alignment. the drop took it to -4.7 camber in the rear, sitting at -1.7 as of yesterday.

No rubbing issues at all.
You think this set up will be half as bad without such a big drop...Hotchkis TVS...Im not tying to have bad camber issues.

which wheels do you all suggest using with the STOCK 18" x 8.0" (front) 18" x 8.5" (rear) sizes with the Brembos? I liked the Gram Lights and Volk wheels, any help is very appreciated!!

Probably not so bad. The lower the car goes, the less camber you have. You might still need adjustable arms though.

If you guys are interested in any of the Prodrive wheels, feel free to contact me. My shop is actually the ONLY official distributor of the Prodrive line up in the 350z/G35 fitment.

Here is a picture of my old setup with 275/40/18 in the rear. Swappd it out for 275/35/18 now. Because the 40 series tires were rubbing in the rear due to my 1.2 inch drop.
