Man i really want the Nismo 19's after seeing some photos. Wonder if you can feel the extra weight/size over the 18's much?

i've been searching to find a way to get the lmgt4's with the aggressive offsets and found out they're too difficult to get and way too expensive. about $1000 more than standard offset lmgt4's.

If you are talking about the stock 225/45~245/45 18s, they will fit, some dealer sold someone hear a car with them mounted on there but the stretch is so tight, I think you would be better off wearing through or selling your stock tires and buying the proper sizes, 245/40~275/40 18.

Very nice! That's the first G I've seen with the Nismos. Gives it a sportier look, IMO.

dimeryder, what are your impressions of switching from 18" to 19" wheels? I know you were riding on the OEM Ray's.

i really like the look and also like having more width. although, my Z does not accelerate as fast anymore. with the 18's my Z would rush forward. with the 19's it feels like i un-installed my lightweight flywheel. feels like stock acceleration now. oh well, twins will fix that problem.

if i remember correctly it's about 23lbs. big difference. plus bigger tires. i felt the difference instantly. don't get me wrong, it's still fast, but there's a lag in acceleration. feels heavy. i still get the same tire spin when shifting. now i jus need to add a little more HP....

mc350, it is the total combined weight of both wheel and tire you want to consider. The S03 & Toyos are among the lightest tires for the 18" size, but I got the Eagles because they were close (IIRC, only less than two more pounds per tire), but had a higher road rating from users on TireRack. If you go with a bigger wheel, the rotating inertia effect becomes more noticeable.

tirerack still has S-03's available. i check with them last week. they are having a sale on some sizes of the REO50A's which were the tires i bought. i checked the specs and compared the two and found that the REO50A's are a couple pounds lighter than the S-03's. i'm sure the S-03's provide better performance though.

Speaking with the Bridgestone rep at the National Z Convention in Dallas last May, the RE050 was intended to be the S03 successor. There were immediate complaints about 050 tire performance (specifically fast wearing tread and 'soft' sidewall stiffness) that resulted in an quick change in production to the RE050A. It has better wet performance compared to the S03, but at the expense of ultimate comparable dry grip - my guess being rubber-to-void ratio in the tread pattern. The 050 has lots of wide grooves to evacuate water! HTH
