In for pics.
Feels like it's been a really long winter, but it won't be much longer.

Thanks! I did my research first and it seems alot of people are really happy with the set-up Swift Springs give out of the box. I plan on eventually upgrading my struts to Koni/Bilstein to take full advantage of them. Pretty excited to put them on. Rear fenders might need a slight roll though.

Well, the RPF1's are on! Just waiting on a chance to get the car photographed properly.

Looks great, what are the offsets? Did you have to do anything to make them fit?

This may have been asked already in the previous 140+ something pages so excuse me if it has been but I am trying to find the perfect Enkei RPF1 Fitment with the offsets for my 07 350z.

I'm almost pretty set on 18x8.5 fronts (with 245/40/18 tires) and 18x9.5 rear (with 275/40/18 tires). Now my only options for front offsets are +30mm and +40mm and for the rears there are +15mm, +38mm, and +45mm.

Which offsets should I run for optimal fitment without needing to roll fenders and run spacers? I'm trying to avoid doing anything of the sort and I'm trying to avoid a sunken look. This car is daily driven and I may or may not be planning to lower the car slightly (probably 0.5-1inch in the rear to lose the wheel gap) but for now I'm on stock height and I just want them to fit nicely.

Best fit for RPF1 on a 33 are 9.5/10.5 +15 F&R BUT... you will have to roll rears with any +15s out back, 9.5 or 10.5. (At least if lowered; not sure about stock height). I've run widths of 8.5 to 11s on the rear of mine with offsets of +20 to +30 on stock rear lips. As soon as I put on 9.5 +15 RPF1s, ooops, off to the fender roller guy.

All of the other offsets are too high for the Z and would need spacers to fit flush.

So you have to figure out if you want to run the wheels (9.5 or 10.5 rears) natural (@ +15mm with no spacers) but roll the fenders OR...

Run the higher offset wheels (9.5 +38) with spacers of around 15mm for close to flush fit with net effective offset of +23 without rolling.

EDIT: Forgot.... my experience was with the tire sizes you mentioned. You MIGHT (do not know but for it being logical) that you might be able to run the +15 rears sans rolling with a 265/40 tire. But again, just a guess.

The perfect RPF1 fitment is 18x9.5 +15mm front and 18x10.5 +15mm rear if you want to keep a stagger. You have a myriad of tire sizes, 245/40 front and 275/40 rear to keep stock OD if you like the truck look. 265/35 front and 285/35 rear is ~3/4" shorter than stock and keeps the stock front to rear diameter ratio (my car, pictured here) and is a good choice. You can even go slightly shorter with combination of 255/35, 265/35 and 275/35 if so desire to broaden your selection of tires, at the risk of increasing wheel gap if you're at OEM height.

With that said, I ran 265/35 front and 285/35 rear at OE height and it does not look bad in terms of wheel gap and the tires stick slightly out from fender. In addition, no rubbing on OEM height with michelin PSS in this configuration with both front and rear fenders rolled. I did recently lower the car and at around ~20mm lower than stock the fronts rub badly (eyeball camber probably in the -1.5 range), raised car up to ~10mm lower than stock and rubbing is only present on sharp bumps when I go over them slightly faster. Will need to get car aligned and out to an event to report on rubbing on track, may need more negative camber and/or raising.

My opinion, roll the fenders and go with the 18x9.5 and 18x10.5 set up if you want RPF1s, the other sizes you listed just won't look right and you'll end up spending money on spacers. The rear fenders are already rolled on the Z so all you need to do is roll the front, easy and/or not expensive.

Any thoughts on the new PF05? I'm feeling this style. Too new to find a lot of photos on cars yet.

Enkei PF05

Style is right for Z. IMO, 5 spoke designs are the cleanest for the car. (I like others but I just like a simple, "classic" 5-spoke design like LMGT4 & 5).

Only niggly I have about them is that they're fairly expensive for the weight they bring to the table. Something on the order of 22-24lbs/wheel in 18" Z sizes (9.5/10.5 I think). Not terrible weight, just that if I'm paying $400/wheel, I'd want sub-20# like RPF1s (being roughly the same price). But I'll admit I'm spoiled.

But ya, puts this wheel right there with SSR GTV01, price/weight/styling.

I agree with your assessment 100%. I might just give them a try.
