I believe the Enkei wheels weight in at approx. 20 lbs. The stock 17's are approx. 24-25lbs.

Default Enkei RPO3 wheels/nitto 555's

Has anyone installed Enkei RPO3 staggered wheels w/ nitto 555 245/275 tires?
I got what seems like a GREAT internet price from STREETDREAMS, but would like some feedback before I buy. As always, this is the best forum and any guidance is genuinely appreciated.

My 2004 ZR is not lowered. I run Stillen sways, Prothane bushings, nismo exhaust, G-Spec braces, and K&N Typhoon. Aside from a few other nismo "jewelry" goodies, all else is stock. WHEELS AND TIRES ARE A MUST.

Any advice is sincerely appreciated. I think I realy like this package. Thanks.

Default Wheels, Enkei RP03

I am new to the whole "wheel" scene so I am not sure if Enkei is a good brand or not. I saw the RP03's on a Z a couple months ago and thought they looked great. Anyone familiar with these?

Also, If I am getting 19" , what size do you get for the Z? 19x 8.5, 9, 9.5?

Thanks

I am not familiar with those exact wheels, but Enkei wheels are very durable.
Also, the prices for their wheels are real good.

How do you know what size to get? I know I want 19" but how do you know if its 8.5, 9, 9.5 etc? do you get wider in the back?? does certain variations ride smoother or is it all about looks?

Also, I don't think I want to lower the car....Will it look fine on the stock suspension?

Thanks
Scott

the 18's on a customers Z...he is lowered on JIC (I think?) coilovers and has a front Wilwood kit. These are 18x8.5 +30, 18x9 +18

As for 18's or 19's, if your roads are smooth, go for 19's (19x8.5 +22 or 19x9 +18 for a more aggressive look, and 19x9 +18 or 19x9.5 or 10.5 +22 for a more aggressive look. If the roads are rough near you, as they are near us, go for the 18's - they ride 100% better. The ride won't really vary with the staggered setups.

If you need some, let us know

Z1, what kind of wheels are those?

What is a staggered setup?

Also, what is the tread life on the tires on a 19" vs 18"? I dont think its really worth spending that much money on new wheels to keep them the same size as the stock....maybe im wrong..

those are RP03. Staggered setup means a different size in front vs rear

tread life varies by tire, alignment and driving style

not all Z's come with 18's....and even for those that do, no stock wheel will look as aggressive as aftermarket ones

a +38 will be pretty tucked on a 9.5" wheel and not something I would recommend. Is there a reason you don't want to run a stagered 10" rear and 9" front? They have, what I consider, near perfect offsets in those widths
